Is SunOpta under- or over-valued?
Valuing SunOpta stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SunOpta's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SunOpta's P/E ratio
SunOpta's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, SunOpta shares trade at around 15x 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.
SunOpta's PEG ratio
SunOpta's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 31.17. 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 SunOpta's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
SunOpta's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $46.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SunOpta's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting SunOpta shares
There are currently 1.6 million SunOpta shares held short by investors – that's known as SunOpta's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% up from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SunOpta shares can be evaluated.
SunOpta's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
SunOpta's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SunOpta shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SunOpta shares traded daily (recently around 682460.43478261). SunOpta's SIR currently stands at 2.3. In other words for every 100,000 SunOpta shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2300 shares are currently held short.
However SunOpta's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SunOpta shares, or, against the total number of tradable SunOpta shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SunOpta's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SunOpta shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SunOpta shares, roughly 17 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 SunOpta.
