Valuing IES stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of IES's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
IES'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, IES 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.
IES's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$69.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a IES's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 162,441 IES shares held short by investors – that's known as IES's "short interest". This figure is 16.3% down from 194,177 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting IES shares can be evaluated.
IES's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IES shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IES shares traded daily (recently around 74173.97260274). IES's SIR currently stands at 2.19. In other words for every 100,000 IES shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2190 shares are currently held short.
However IES's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IES shares, or, against the total number of tradable IES shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IES's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IES shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0161% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IES shares, roughly 16 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 IES.

We're not expecting IES to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
IES's shares were split on a 1000:17092 basis on 15 May 2006. So if you had owned 17092 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your IES shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1609.2% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for IES shares which in turn could have impacted IES's share price.
Over the last 12 months, IES's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.7297 up to $49.85. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while IES's is 1.1501. This would suggest that IES's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
