Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value.

Beyond Meat's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.7516. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Beyond Meat's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider Beyond Meat's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Beyond Meat's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $699,000 (£508,523).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Beyond Meat's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 14.6 million Beyond Meat shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 10.6% up from 13.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Beyond Meat shares can be evaluated.

Short interest ratio (SIR)

Beyond Meat's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Beyond Meat shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Beyond Meat shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Beyond Meat's SIR currently stands at 6.21. In other words for every 100,000 Beyond Meat shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6210 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Beyond Meat's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Beyond Meat's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Beyond Meat shares, or, against the total number of tradable Beyond Meat shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Beyond Meat's short interest could be expressed as 0.23% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Beyond Meat shares in existence, roughly 230 shares are currently held short) or 0.2596% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Beyond Meat shares, roughly 260 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 Beyond Meat.
