Valuing Scholastic Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Scholastic Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Scholastic Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 64x. In other words, Scholastic Corporation shares trade at around 64x 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.
Scholastic Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.63. 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 Scholastic Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Scholastic Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$49.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Scholastic Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 393,591 Scholastic Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Scholastic Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 23% up from 320,100 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Scholastic Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Scholastic Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Scholastic Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Scholastic Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 184784.50704225). Scholastic Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.13. In other words for every 100,000 Scholastic Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2130 shares are currently held short.
However Scholastic Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Scholastic Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Scholastic Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Scholastic Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Scholastic Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Scholastic Corporation shares, roughly 15 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 Scholastic Corporation.

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Scholastic Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Scholastic Corporation's share price.
