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 56x. In other words, SPX FLOW shares trade at around 56x 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 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SPX FLOW's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 955,088 SPX FLOW shares held short by investors – that's known as SPX FLOW's "short interest". This figure is 28.1% down from 1.3 million 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 231256.17433414). SPX FLOW's SIR currently stands at 4.13. In other words for every 100,000 SPX FLOW shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4130 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 0.0355% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SPX FLOW shares, roughly 36 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.

Over the last 12 months, SPX FLOW's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.74 up to $49.94. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
