Valuing Methanex Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Methanex Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.
Methanex Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.98. 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 Methanex 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.

There are currently 2.0 million Methanex Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Methanex Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 16.7% down from 2.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Methanex Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Methanex Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Methanex Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Methanex Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 401223.01587302). Methanex Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.04. In other words for every 100,000 Methanex Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5040 shares are currently held short.
However Methanex Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Methanex Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Methanex Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Methanex Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Methanex Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Methanex Corporation shares, roughly 0 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 Methanex Corporation.
