Valuing Lawson Products stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lawson Products's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lawson Products's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 41x. In other words, Lawson Products shares trade at around 41x 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.
Lawson Products's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.19. 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 Lawson Products's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Lawson Products's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $29.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Lawson Products's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

We're not expecting Lawson Products to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Lawson Products's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 18 April 1988. 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 Lawson Products shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lawson Products shares which in turn could have impacted Lawson Products's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Lawson Products's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.92 up to $62.1. 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 Lawson Products's is 1.0294. This would suggest that Lawson Products's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
