Valuing IPG Photonics Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of IPG Photonics Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
IPG Photonics 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 112x. In other words, IPG Photonics Corporation shares trade at around 112x 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.
IPG Photonics Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.52. 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 IPG Photonics 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.
IPG Photonics Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$305.8 million.

There are currently 1.0 million IPG Photonics Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as IPG Photonics Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% down from 1.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting IPG Photonics Corporation shares can be evaluated.
IPG Photonics Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IPG Photonics Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IPG Photonics Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 211256.08247423). IPG Photonics Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.85. In other words for every 100,000 IPG Photonics Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4850 shares are currently held short.
However IPG Photonics Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IPG Photonics Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable IPG Photonics Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IPG Photonics Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IPG Photonics Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0359% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IPG Photonics Corporation shares, roughly 36 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 IPG Photonics Corporation.
