Valuing KVH Industries stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of KVH Industries's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
KVH Industries's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, KVH Industries shares trade at around 5x 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.
KVH Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.35. 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 KVH Industries's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 150,839 KVH Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as KVH Industries's "short interest". This figure is 8.1% up from 139,525 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting KVH Industries shares can be evaluated.
KVH Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of KVH Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of KVH Industries shares traded daily (recently around 73940.68627451). KVH Industries's SIR currently stands at 2.04. In other words for every 100,000 KVH Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2040 shares are currently held short.
However KVH Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of KVH Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable KVH Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case KVH Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 KVH Industries shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.009% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable KVH Industries shares, roughly 9 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 KVH Industries.
