Valuing U-SConcrete stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of U-SConcrete's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
U-SConcrete's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, U-SConcrete shares trade at around 20x 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.
U-SConcrete's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2763. 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 U-SConcrete's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
U-SConcrete's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$173.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a U-SConcrete's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.1 million U-SConcrete shares held short by investors – that's known as U-SConcrete's "short interest". This figure is 7.6% down from 1.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting U-SConcrete shares can be evaluated.
U-SConcrete's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of U-SConcrete shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of U-SConcrete shares traded daily (recently around 263039.72286374). U-SConcrete's SIR currently stands at 4.33. In other words for every 100,000 U-SConcrete shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4330 shares are currently held short.
However U-SConcrete's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of U-SConcrete shares, or, against the total number of tradable U-SConcrete shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case U-SConcrete's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 U-SConcrete shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0781% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable U-SConcrete shares, roughly 78 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 U-SConcrete.

We're not expecting U-SConcrete to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, U-SConcrete's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.75 up to $43.345. 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 U-SConcrete's is 1.4166. This would suggest that U-SConcrete's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
