Valuing Premier Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Premier Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Premier Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 27x. In other words, Premier Financial shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
Premier Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.96. 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 Premier Financial'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 329,371 Premier Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Premier Financial's "short interest". This figure is 37.5% down from 527,143 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Premier Financial shares can be evaluated.
Premier Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Premier Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Premier Financial shares traded daily (recently around 187142.61363636). Premier Financial's SIR currently stands at 1.76. In other words for every 100,000 Premier Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1760 shares are currently held short.
However Premier Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Premier Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Premier Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Premier Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Premier Financial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0095% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Premier Financial shares, roughly 10 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 Premier Financial.

We're not expecting Premier Financial to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Premier Financial's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 13 July 2018. 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 Premier Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Premier Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Premier Financial's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Premier Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.8074 up to $27.58. 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 Premier Financial's is 1.4465. This would suggest that Premier Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
