Valuing LGI Homes stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of LGI Homes's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
LGI Homes's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, LGI Homes shares trade at around 15x 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.
LGI Homes's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.69. 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 LGI Homes's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
LGI Homes's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$274 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a LGI Homes's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.4 million LGI Homes shares held short by investors – that's known as LGI Homes's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% down from 2.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting LGI Homes shares can be evaluated.
LGI Homes's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LGI Homes shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LGI Homes shares traded daily (recently around 302788.99876391). LGI Homes's SIR currently stands at 8.09. In other words for every 100,000 LGI Homes shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8090 shares are currently held short.
However LGI Homes's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LGI Homes shares, or, against the total number of tradable LGI Homes shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LGI Homes's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LGI Homes shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1285% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LGI Homes shares, roughly 129 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against LGI Homes.
