Is SPX Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing SPX Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SPX Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SPX Corporation's P/E ratio
SPX 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 29x. In other words, SPX Corporation shares trade at around 29x 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 Corporation's PEG ratio
SPX Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4292. 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 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.
SPX Corporation's EBITDA
SPX Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $183.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SPX Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting SPX Corporation shares
There are currently 534,526 SPX Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as SPX Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 12.9% down from 613,724 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SPX Corporation shares can be evaluated.
SPX Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
SPX Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SPX Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SPX Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 181195.25423729). SPX Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.95. In other words for every 100,000 SPX Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2950 shares are currently held short.
However SPX Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SPX Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable SPX Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SPX Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SPX Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0121% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SPX Corporation shares, roughly 12 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 Corporation.

Have SPX Corporation's shares ever split?
SPX Corporation's shares were split on a 3971:1000 basis on 27 September 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3971 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SPX Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 74.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SPX Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted SPX Corporation's share price.
SPX Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, SPX Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.745 up to $66.56. 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 Corporation's is 1.3281. This would suggest that SPX Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
