Valuing Hibbett Sports stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hibbett Sports's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hibbett Sports's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Hibbett Sports shares trade at around 25x 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.
Hibbett Sports's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.81. 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 Hibbett Sports's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Hibbett Sports's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$124.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Hibbett Sports's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 3.9 million Hibbett Sports shares held short by investors – that's known as Hibbett Sports's "short interest". This figure is 12.9% down from 4.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hibbett Sports shares can be evaluated.
Hibbett Sports's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hibbett Sports shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hibbett Sports shares traded daily (recently around 654951.42378559). Hibbett Sports's SIR currently stands at 5.97. In other words for every 100,000 Hibbett Sports shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5970 shares are currently held short.
However Hibbett Sports's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hibbett Sports shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hibbett Sports shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hibbett Sports's short interest could be expressed as 0.24% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hibbett Sports shares in existence, roughly 240 shares are currently held short) or 0.333% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hibbett Sports shares, roughly 333 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 Hibbett Sports.

Hibbett Sports's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 28 September 2005. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares.
