Valuing Viad stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Viad's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Viad's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Viad shares trade at around 22x 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.
Viad's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.59. 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 Viad's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Viad's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$46.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Viad's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 750,271 Viad shares held short by investors – that's known as Viad's "short interest". This figure is 9.2% down from 826,557 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Viad shares can be evaluated.
Viad's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Viad shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Viad shares traded daily (recently around 163814.62882096). Viad's SIR currently stands at 4.58. In other words for every 100,000 Viad shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4580 shares are currently held short.
However Viad's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Viad shares, or, against the total number of tradable Viad shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Viad's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Viad shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.071% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Viad shares, roughly 71 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 Viad.

We're not expecting Viad to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Viad's shares were split on a 1062:1000 basis on 4 February 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1062 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Viad shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Viad shares which in turn could have impacted Viad's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Viad's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.86 up to $46.44. 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 Viad's is 2.0783. This would suggest that Viad's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
