Valuing LSI Industries stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of LSI Industries's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
LSI 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 30x. In other words, LSI Industries shares trade at around 30x 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.
LSI Industries's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1186. 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 LSI 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.
LSI Industries's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$14.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a LSI Industries's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 396,837 LSI Industries shares held short by investors – that's known as LSI Industries's "short interest". This figure is 13.9% down from 460,867 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting LSI Industries shares can be evaluated.
LSI Industries's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LSI Industries shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LSI Industries shares traded daily (recently around 76461.849710983). LSI Industries's SIR currently stands at 5.19. In other words for every 100,000 LSI Industries shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5190 shares are currently held short.
However LSI Industries's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LSI Industries shares, or, against the total number of tradable LSI Industries shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LSI Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LSI Industries shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0154% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LSI Industries shares, roughly 15 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 LSI Industries.

Dividend payout ratio: 83.33% of net profits
Recently LSI Industries has paid out, on average, around 83.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), LSI Industries shareholders could enjoy a 2.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In LSI Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.
LSI Industries's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
LSI Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 17 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
LSI Industries's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 17 November 2003. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your LSI Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for LSI Industries shares which in turn could have impacted LSI Industries's share price.
Over the last 12 months, LSI Industries's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.4452 up to $8.46. 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 LSI Industries's is 2.0079. This would suggest that LSI Industries's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
