Valuing SPX FLOW stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SPX FLOW's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SPX FLOW's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 476x. In other words, SPX FLOW shares trade at around 476x 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.
SPX FLOW's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.91. 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 SPX FLOW's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
SPX FLOW's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$138.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SPX FLOW's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 740,544 SPX FLOW shares held short by investors – that's known as SPX FLOW's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% up from 721,252 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SPX FLOW shares can be evaluated.
SPX FLOW's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SPX FLOW shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SPX FLOW shares traded daily (recently around 238885.16129032). SPX FLOW's SIR currently stands at 3.1. In other words for every 100,000 SPX FLOW shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3100 shares are currently held short.
However SPX FLOW's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SPX FLOW shares, or, against the total number of tradable SPX FLOW shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SPX FLOW's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SPX FLOW shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0278% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SPX FLOW shares, roughly 28 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 SPX FLOW.

Dividend payout ratio: 6.82% of net profits
Recently SPX FLOW has paid out, on average, around 6.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SPX FLOW shareholders could enjoy a 0.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SPX FLOW's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.
While SPX FLOW's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that SPX FLOW is investing more in its future growth.
SPX FLOW's most recent dividend payout was on 13 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, SPX FLOW's shares have ranged in value from as little as $24.6153 up to $69.9016. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while SPX FLOW's is 1.8092. This would suggest that SPX FLOW's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
