Valuing Willdan Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Willdan Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Willdan Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 48x. In other words, Willdan Group shares trade at around 48x 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.
Willdan Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$14.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Willdan Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 576,820 Willdan Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Willdan Group's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% down from 582,135 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Willdan Group shares can be evaluated.
Willdan Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Willdan Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Willdan Group shares traded daily (recently around 53707.635009311). Willdan Group's SIR currently stands at 10.74. In other words for every 100,000 Willdan Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10740 shares are currently held short.
However Willdan Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Willdan Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Willdan Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Willdan Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Willdan Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0508% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Willdan Group shares, roughly 51 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Willdan Group.

Over the last 12 months, Willdan Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.92 up to $39.6. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
