Valuing SP Plus Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SP Plus Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SP Plus 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 17x. In other words, SP Plus Corporation shares trade at around 17x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
SP Plus Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.91. 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 SP Plus 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.
SP Plus Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$64.6 million.

There are currently 523,957 SP Plus Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as SP Plus Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 22.4% down from 674,994 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SP Plus Corporation shares can be evaluated.
SP Plus Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SP Plus Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SP Plus Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 129053.44827586). SP Plus Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.06. In other words for every 100,000 SP Plus Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4060 shares are currently held short.
However SP Plus Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SP Plus Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable SP Plus Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SP Plus Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SP Plus Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0229% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SP Plus Corporation shares, roughly 23 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 SP Plus Corporation.

SP Plus Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 January 2008. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares.

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