Valuing Saia stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Saia's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Saia's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 47x. In other words, Saia shares trade at around 47x 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.
Saia's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.68. 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 Saia's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Saia's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$312.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Saia's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 721,404 Saia shares held short by investors – that's known as Saia's "short interest". This figure is 8.5% down from 788,786 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Saia shares can be evaluated.
Saia's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Saia shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Saia shares traded daily (recently around 211555.42521994). Saia's SIR currently stands at 3.41. In other words for every 100,000 Saia shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3410 shares are currently held short.
However Saia's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Saia shares, or, against the total number of tradable Saia shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Saia's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Saia shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0368% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Saia shares, roughly 37 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 Saia.

We're not expecting Saia to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Saia's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 13 June 2013. 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 Saia shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Saia shares which in turn could have impacted Saia's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Saia's shares have ranged in value from as little as $69.03 up to $243.36. 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 Saia's is 1.2791. This would suggest that Saia's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
