Valuing Univar Solutions stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Univar Solutions's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Univar Solutions's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 99x. In other words, Univar Solutions shares trade at around 99x 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.
Univar Solutions's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.42. 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 Univar Solutions's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Univar Solutions's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$558.1 million.

There are currently 2.7 million Univar Solutions shares held short by investors – that's known as Univar Solutions's "short interest". This figure is 47% down from 5.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Univar Solutions shares can be evaluated.
Univar Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Univar Solutions shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Univar Solutions shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Univar Solutions's SIR currently stands at 1.62. In other words for every 100,000 Univar Solutions shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1620 shares are currently held short.
However Univar Solutions's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Univar Solutions shares, or, against the total number of tradable Univar Solutions shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Univar Solutions's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Univar Solutions shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0165% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Univar Solutions 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 Univar Solutions.
