Valuing Kelly Services stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kelly Services's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kelly Services's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Kelly Services shares trade at around 4x 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.
Kelly Services's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0477. 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 Kelly Services's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Kelly Services's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$68.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Kelly Services's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 366,890 Kelly Services shares held short by investors – that's known as Kelly Services's "short interest". This figure is 44.9% down from 665,940 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kelly Services shares can be evaluated.
Kelly Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kelly Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kelly Services shares traded daily (recently around 324681.4159292). Kelly Services's SIR currently stands at 1.13. In other words for every 100,000 Kelly Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1130 shares are currently held short.
However Kelly Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kelly Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kelly Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kelly Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kelly Services shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kelly Services shares, roughly 0 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 Kelly Services.

We're not expecting Kelly Services to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Kelly Services's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 13 June 1993. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kelly Services shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kelly Services shares which in turn could have impacted Kelly Services's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Kelly Services's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.01 up to $24.1. 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 Kelly Services's is 1.2879. This would suggest that Kelly Services's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
