Valuing Ingevity Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ingevity Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ingevity 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 18x. In other words, Ingevity Corporation shares trade at around 18x 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.
Ingevity Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.05. 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 Ingevity 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.
Ingevity Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$375.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ingevity Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.1 million Ingevity Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Ingevity Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 13.2% down from 1.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ingevity Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Ingevity Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ingevity Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ingevity Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 237467.10526316). Ingevity Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.56. In other words for every 100,000 Ingevity Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4560 shares are currently held short.
However Ingevity Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ingevity Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ingevity Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ingevity Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ingevity Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0299% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ingevity Corporation shares, roughly 30 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 Ingevity Corporation.
