Valuing Himax Technologies stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Himax Technologies's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Himax Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2500x. In other words, Himax Technologies shares trade at around 2500x 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.
Himax Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.81. 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 Himax Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Himax Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$18.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Himax Technologies's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.4 million Himax Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Himax Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% up from 3.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Himax Technologies shares can be evaluated.
Himax Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Himax Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Himax Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 671414.67710372). Himax Technologies's SIR currently stands at 5.11. In other words for every 100,000 Himax Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5110 shares are currently held short.
However Himax Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Himax Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Himax Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Himax Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Himax Technologies shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Himax Technologies shares, roughly 0 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 Himax Technologies.
