Is Hayward under- or over-valued?
Valuing Hayward stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hayward's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hayward's P/E ratio
Hayward's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 545x. In other words, Hayward shares trade at around 545x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
However, Hayward's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the electrical equipment & parts industry or those of similar companies.
Hayward's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $318.5 million.

Shorting Hayward shares
There are currently 3.3 million Hayward shares held short by investors – that's known as Hayward's "short interest". This figure is 28.5% up from 2.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hayward shares can be evaluated.
Hayward's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Hayward's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hayward shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hayward shares traded daily (recently around 841686.18925831). Hayward's SIR currently stands at 3.91. In other words for every 100,000 Hayward shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3910 shares are currently held short.
To gain some more context, you can compare Hayward's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.
However Hayward's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hayward shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hayward shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hayward's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hayward shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.041% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hayward shares, roughly 41 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Hayward.
