Valuing Matrix Service Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Matrix Service Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Matrix Service 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 19x. In other words, Matrix Service Company shares trade at around 19x 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.
Matrix Service Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.28. 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 Matrix Service Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Matrix Service Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$23.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Matrix Service Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 878,922 Matrix Service Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Matrix Service Company's "short interest". This figure is 18.5% up from 742,000 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Matrix Service Company shares can be evaluated.
Matrix Service Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Matrix Service Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Matrix Service Company shares traded daily (recently around 177919.43319838). Matrix Service Company's SIR currently stands at 4.94. In other words for every 100,000 Matrix Service Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4940 shares are currently held short.
However Matrix Service Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Matrix Service Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Matrix Service Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Matrix Service Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Matrix Service Company shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0415% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Matrix Service Company shares, roughly 42 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Matrix Service Company.

We're not expecting Matrix Service Company to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Matrix Service Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 November 2003. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Matrix Service Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Matrix Service Company shares which in turn could have impacted Matrix Service Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Matrix Service Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.11 up to $23.83. 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 Matrix Service Company's is 1.5665. This would suggest that Matrix Service 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).
