Valuing WESCO International stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of WESCO International's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
WESCO International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 57x. In other words, WESCO International shares trade at around 57x 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.
WESCO International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9248. 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 WESCO International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
WESCO International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$638.5 million.

There are currently 1.4 million WESCO International shares held short by investors – that's known as WESCO International's "short interest". This figure is 23.5% down from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting WESCO International shares can be evaluated.
WESCO International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WESCO International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WESCO International shares traded daily (recently around 472553.66666667). WESCO International's SIR currently stands at 3. In other words for every 100,000 WESCO International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3000 shares are currently held short.
However WESCO International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WESCO International shares, or, against the total number of tradable WESCO International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WESCO International's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WESCO International shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0285% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WESCO International shares, roughly 29 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 WESCO International.

However, indirectly, the new 5600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for WESCO International shares which in turn could have impacted WESCO International's share price.
