Valuing TrueBlue stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of TrueBlue's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
TrueBlue'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, TrueBlue 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.
TrueBlue's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4. 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 TrueBlue's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
TrueBlue's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$59 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a TrueBlue's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 508,975 TrueBlue shares held short by investors – that's known as TrueBlue's "short interest". This figure is 37.9% down from 819,220 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting TrueBlue shares can be evaluated.
TrueBlue's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TrueBlue shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TrueBlue shares traded daily (recently around 284343.57541899). TrueBlue's SIR currently stands at 1.79. In other words for every 100,000 TrueBlue shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1790 shares are currently held short.
However TrueBlue's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TrueBlue shares, or, against the total number of tradable TrueBlue shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TrueBlue's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TrueBlue shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0207% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TrueBlue shares, roughly 21 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 TrueBlue.

We're not expecting TrueBlue to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
TrueBlue's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 13 July 1999. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your TrueBlue shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for TrueBlue shares which in turn could have impacted TrueBlue's share price.
Over the last 12 months, TrueBlue's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.02 up to $24.98. 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 TrueBlue's is 1.8086. This would suggest that TrueBlue's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
