Is Park Aerospace under- or over-valued?
Valuing Park Aerospace stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Park Aerospace's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Park Aerospace's P/E ratio
Park Aerospace's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 56x. In other words, Park Aerospace shares trade at around 56x 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.
Park Aerospace's PEG ratio
Park Aerospace's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.36. 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 Park Aerospace's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Park Aerospace's EBITDA
Park Aerospace's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $9.9 million.

Shorting Park Aerospace shares
There are currently 445,343 Park Aerospace shares held short by investors – that's known as Park Aerospace's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% down from 462,154 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Park Aerospace shares can be evaluated.
Park Aerospace's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Park Aerospace's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Park Aerospace shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Park Aerospace shares traded daily (recently around 72768.464052288). Park Aerospace's SIR currently stands at 6.12. In other words for every 100,000 Park Aerospace shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6120 shares are currently held short.
However Park Aerospace's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Park Aerospace shares, or, against the total number of tradable Park Aerospace shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Park Aerospace's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Park Aerospace shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0131% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Park Aerospace shares, roughly 13 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 Park Aerospace.

Park Aerospace share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 95.44% of net profits
Recently Park Aerospace has paid out, on average, around 95.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Park Aerospace shareholders could enjoy a 2.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Park Aerospace's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
Park Aerospace'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.
Park Aerospace's most recent dividend payout was on 4 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Park Aerospace's shares ever split?
Park Aerospace's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 8 November 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Park Aerospace shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Park Aerospace shares which in turn could have impacted Park Aerospace's share price.
Park Aerospace share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Park Aerospace's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.2215 up to $16.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
