Valuing Henry Schein stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Henry Schein's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Henry Schein's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Henry Schein shares trade at around 15x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Henry Schein's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9993. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Henry Schein's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 7.5 million Henry Schein shares held short by investors – that's known as Henry Schein's "short interest". This figure is 13.3% down from 8.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Henry Schein shares can be evaluated.
Henry Schein's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Henry Schein shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Henry Schein shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Henry Schein's SIR currently stands at 7.19. In other words for every 100,000 Henry Schein shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7190 shares are currently held short.
However Henry Schein's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Henry Schein shares, or, against the total number of tradable Henry Schein shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Henry Schein's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Henry Schein shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0682% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Henry Schein shares, roughly 68 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Henry Schein.
