Valuing MGP Ingredients stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of MGP Ingredients's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
MGP Ingredients's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, MGP Ingredients shares trade at around 18x 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.
MGP Ingredients's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.47. 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 MGP Ingredients's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
MGP Ingredients's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$67.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a MGP Ingredients's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.1 million MGP Ingredients shares held short by investors – that's known as MGP Ingredients's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% up from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting MGP Ingredients shares can be evaluated.
MGP Ingredients's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MGP Ingredients shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MGP Ingredients shares traded daily (recently around 103526.78926441). MGP Ingredients's SIR currently stands at 20.12. In other words for every 100,000 MGP Ingredients shares traded daily on the market, roughly 20120 shares are currently held short.
However MGP Ingredients's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MGP Ingredients shares, or, against the total number of tradable MGP Ingredients shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MGP Ingredients's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MGP Ingredients shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1924% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MGP Ingredients shares, roughly 192 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against MGP Ingredients.

Dividend payout ratio: 19.05% of net profits
Recently MGP Ingredients has paid out, on average, around 19.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.1% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), MGP Ingredients shareholders could enjoy a 1.1% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In MGP Ingredients's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.
While MGP Ingredients's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that MGP Ingredients is investing more in its future growth.
MGP Ingredients's most recent dividend payout was on 4 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
MGP Ingredients's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 July 2004. 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 MGP Ingredients shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for MGP Ingredients shares which in turn could have impacted MGP Ingredients's share price.
Over the last 12 months, MGP Ingredients's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.4376 up to $52.6048. 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 MGP Ingredients's is 1.6313. This would suggest that MGP Ingredients's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
