Valuing Ultra Clean stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ultra Clean's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ultra Clean's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Ultra Clean shares trade at around 32x 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.
Ultra Clean's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.75. 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 Ultra Clean's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Ultra Clean's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$156.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ultra Clean's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.3 million Ultra Clean shares held short by investors – that's known as Ultra Clean's "short interest". This figure is 19.1% down from 2.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ultra Clean shares can be evaluated.
Ultra Clean's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ultra Clean shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ultra Clean shares traded daily (recently around 346979.64071856). Ultra Clean's SIR currently stands at 6.68. In other words for every 100,000 Ultra Clean shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6680 shares are currently held short.
However Ultra Clean's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ultra Clean shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ultra Clean shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ultra Clean's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ultra Clean shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0686% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ultra Clean shares, roughly 69 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Ultra Clean.
