Valuing National Beverage stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of National Beverage's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
National Beverage's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, National Beverage shares trade at around 32x 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.
National Beverage's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4578. 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 National Beverage's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
National Beverage's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$205.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a National Beverage's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 7.8 million National Beverage shares held short by investors – that's known as National Beverage's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% down from 7.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting National Beverage shares can be evaluated.
National Beverage's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of National Beverage shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of National Beverage shares traded daily (recently around 292461.12781955). National Beverage's SIR currently stands at 26.6. In other words for every 100,000 National Beverage shares traded daily on the market, roughly 26600 shares are currently held short.
However National Beverage's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of National Beverage shares, or, against the total number of tradable National Beverage shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case National Beverage's short interest could be expressed as 0.17% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 National Beverage shares in existence, roughly 170 shares are currently held short) or 0.6687% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable National Beverage shares, roughly 669 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 National Beverage.

Dividend payout ratio: 95.85% of net profits
Recently National Beverage has paid out, on average, around 95.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), National Beverage shareholders could enjoy a 0% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In National Beverage's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.
National Beverage'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.
National Beverage's most recent dividend payout was on 2 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
National Beverage's shares were split on a 120:100 basis on 31 May 2007. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 120 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your National Beverage shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 16.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for National Beverage shares which in turn could have impacted National Beverage's share price.
Over the last 12 months, National Beverage's shares have ranged in value from as little as $36.2 up to $99.26. 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 National Beverage's is 1.3072. This would suggest that National Beverage's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
