Valuing Lannett Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lannett Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lannett Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 101x. In other words, Lannett Company shares trade at around 101x 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.
Lannett Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$105.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Lannett Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 7.9 million Lannett Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Lannett Company's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% down from 8.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lannett Company shares can be evaluated.
Lannett Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lannett Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lannett Company shares traded daily (recently around 287667.87016776). Lannett Company's SIR currently stands at 27.42. In other words for every 100,000 Lannett Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 27420 shares are currently held short.
However Lannett Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lannett Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lannett Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lannett Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.19% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lannett Company shares in existence, roughly 190 shares are currently held short) or 0.2845% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lannett Company shares, roughly 285 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Lannett Company.

We're not expecting Lannett Company to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Lannett Company's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 3 March 2003. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Lannett Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lannett Company shares which in turn could have impacted Lannett Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Lannett Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.89 up to $10.34. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Lannett Company's is 1.2714. This would suggest that Lannett Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
