Valuing Tetra Tech stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Tetra Tech's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Tetra Tech's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 40x. In other words, Tetra Tech shares trade at around 40x 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.
Tetra Tech's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0169. 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 Tetra Tech's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Tetra Tech's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$239.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Tetra Tech's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 768,340 Tetra Tech shares held short by investors – that's known as Tetra Tech's "short interest". This figure is 4.6% up from 734,241 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Tetra Tech shares can be evaluated.
Tetra Tech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tetra Tech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tetra Tech shares traded daily (recently around 298964.98054475). Tetra Tech's SIR currently stands at 2.57. In other words for every 100,000 Tetra Tech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2570 shares are currently held short.
However Tetra Tech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tetra Tech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tetra Tech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tetra Tech's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tetra Tech shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0197% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tetra Tech shares, roughly 20 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 Tetra Tech.

Dividend payout ratio: 19.81% of net profits
Recently Tetra Tech has paid out, on average, around 19.81% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tetra Tech shareholders could enjoy a 0.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tetra Tech's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
While Tetra Tech's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Tetra Tech is investing more in its future growth.
Tetra Tech's most recent dividend payout was on 4 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Tetra Tech's shares were split on a 5:4 basis on 18 December 2001. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tetra Tech shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tetra Tech shares which in turn could have impacted Tetra Tech's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Tetra Tech's shares have ranged in value from as little as $64.67 up to $112.564. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Tetra Tech's is 0.8472. This would suggest that Tetra Tech's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
