Is Welbilt under- or over-valued?
Valuing Welbilt stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Welbilt's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Welbilt's P/E ratio
Welbilt's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 213x. In other words, Welbilt shares trade at around 213x 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.
Welbilt's PEG ratio
Welbilt's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.04. 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 Welbilt's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Welbilt's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $188.1 million.

Shorting Welbilt shares
There are currently 7.5 million Welbilt shares held short by investors – that's known as Welbilt's "short interest". This figure is 12.2% up from 6.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Welbilt shares can be evaluated.
Welbilt's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Welbilt's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Welbilt shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Welbilt shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Welbilt's SIR currently stands at 4.09. In other words for every 100,000 Welbilt shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4090 shares are currently held short.
However Welbilt's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Welbilt shares, or, against the total number of tradable Welbilt shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Welbilt's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Welbilt shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0534% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Welbilt shares, roughly 53 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 Welbilt.
