Valuing Sterling Construction Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sterling Construction Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sterling Construction 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, Sterling Construction 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.
Sterling Construction Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.44. 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 Sterling Construction 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.
Sterling Construction Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$121.4 million.

There are currently 1.2 million Sterling Construction Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Sterling Construction Company's "short interest". This figure is 3% up from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sterling Construction Company shares can be evaluated.
Sterling Construction Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sterling Construction Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sterling Construction Company shares traded daily (recently around 274460.70588235). Sterling Construction Company's SIR currently stands at 4.25. In other words for every 100,000 Sterling Construction Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4250 shares are currently held short.
However Sterling Construction Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sterling Construction Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sterling Construction Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sterling Construction Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sterling Construction Company shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0519% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sterling Construction Company shares, roughly 52 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 Sterling Construction Company.
