Valuing Lakeland Industries stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lakeland Industries's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lakeland 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 8x. In other words, Lakeland Industries shares trade at around 8x 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.
Lakeland Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.78. 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 Lakeland 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.
Lakeland Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$38.1 million.

There are currently 956,178 Lakeland Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as Lakeland Industries's "short interest". This figure is 8.3% down from 1.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lakeland Industries shares can be evaluated.
Lakeland Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lakeland Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lakeland Industries shares traded daily (recently around 264137.56906077). Lakeland Industries's SIR currently stands at 3.62. In other words for every 100,000 Lakeland Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3620 shares are currently held short.
However Lakeland Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lakeland Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lakeland Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lakeland Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lakeland Industries shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.1571% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lakeland Industries shares, roughly 157 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 Lakeland Industries.
