Valuing IMAX Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of IMAX Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
IMAX Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, IMAX Corporation shares trade at around 20x 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.
IMAX Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.09. 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 IMAX Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
IMAX Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$8.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a IMAX Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 3.8 million IMAX Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as IMAX Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 24.8% down from 5.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting IMAX Corporation shares can be evaluated.
IMAX Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IMAX Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IMAX Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 955558.29145729). IMAX Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.98. In other words for every 100,000 IMAX Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3980 shares are currently held short.
However IMAX Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IMAX Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable IMAX Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IMAX Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IMAX Corporation shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0947% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IMAX Corporation shares, roughly 95 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 IMAX Corporation.

We're not expecting IMAX Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
IMAX Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 May 1997. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your IMAX Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for IMAX Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted IMAX Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, IMAX Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.06 up to $22.35. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while IMAX Corporation's is 1.7347. This would suggest that IMAX Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
