Valuing Sprague Resources stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sprague Resources's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sprague Resources's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Sprague Resources shares trade at around 12x 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.
Sprague Resources's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.07. 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 Sprague Resources's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Sprague Resources's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$127.2 million.

Sprague Resources's SIR currently stands at 0.31. In other words for every 100,000 Sprague Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 310 shares are currently held short.
However Sprague Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sprague Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sprague Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sprague Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sprague Resources shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0016% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sprague Resources shares, roughly 2 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 Sprague Resources.
