Valuing Livent Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Livent Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Livent Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 100x. In other words, Livent Corporation shares trade at around 100x 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.
Livent Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.7549. 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 Livent Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Livent Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$49.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Livent Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 27.0 million Livent Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Livent Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9.2% up from 24.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Livent Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Livent Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Livent Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Livent Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). Livent Corporation's SIR currently stands at 10.24. In other words for every 100,000 Livent Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10240 shares are currently held short.
However Livent Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Livent Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Livent Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Livent Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Livent Corporation shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.3168% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Livent Corporation shares, roughly 317 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Livent Corporation.
