Valuing SpartanNash Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SpartanNash Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SpartanNash Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, SpartanNash Company shares trade at around 9x 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.
SpartanNash Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.08. 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 SpartanNash Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
SpartanNash Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$212.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SpartanNash Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.5 million SpartanNash Company shares held short by investors – that's known as SpartanNash Company's "short interest". This figure is 14.3% up from 2.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SpartanNash Company shares can be evaluated.
SpartanNash Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SpartanNash Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SpartanNash Company shares traded daily (recently around 480479.42307692). SpartanNash Company's SIR currently stands at 5.2. In other words for every 100,000 SpartanNash Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5200 shares are currently held short.
However SpartanNash Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SpartanNash Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable SpartanNash Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SpartanNash Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SpartanNash Company shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0787% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SpartanNash Company shares, roughly 79 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against SpartanNash Company.

Dividend payout ratio: 33.05% of net profits
Recently SpartanNash Company has paid out, on average, around 33.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.2% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SpartanNash Company shareholders could enjoy a 4.2% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SpartanNash Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.77 per share.
While SpartanNash Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that SpartanNash Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
SpartanNash Company's most recent dividend payout was on 31 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
