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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 150x. In other words, Welbilt shares trade at around 150x 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 "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 USD$171.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Welbilt's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 7.4 million Welbilt shares held short by investors – that's known as Welbilt's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 7.4 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) is the quantity of Welbilt shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Welbilt shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Welbilt's SIR currently stands at 5.79. In other words for every 100,000 Welbilt shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5790 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 0.0527% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Welbilt shares, roughly 53 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 Welbilt.

We're not expecting Welbilt to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Welbilt's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.17 up to $17.42. 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 Welbilt's is 1.9677. This would suggest that Welbilt's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
