Valuing SMTC Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SMTC Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SMTC 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 36x. In other words, SMTC Corporation shares trade at around 36x 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.
SMTC Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$27.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SMTC Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 16,715 SMTC Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as SMTC Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 41.5% down from 28,596 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SMTC Corporation shares can be evaluated.
SMTC Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SMTC Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SMTC Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 119392.85714286). SMTC Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.14. In other words for every 100,000 SMTC Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 140 shares are currently held short.
However SMTC Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SMTC Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable SMTC Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SMTC Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SMTC Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0008% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SMTC Corporation shares, roughly 1 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 SMTC Corporation.

We're not expecting SMTC Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
SMTC Corporation's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 4 October 2004. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SMTC Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for SMTC Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted SMTC Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, SMTC Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.32 up to $5.05. 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 SMTC Corporation's is 1.5638. This would suggest that SMTC Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
