Valuing 51job stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of 51job's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
51job's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, 51job shares trade at around 34x 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.
51job's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 64.66. 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 51job's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
51job's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $786.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a 51job's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.8 million 51job shares held short by investors – that's known as 51job's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% down from 2.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting 51job shares can be evaluated.
51job's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of 51job shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of 51job shares traded daily (recently around 832473.13432836). 51job's SIR currently stands at 3.35. In other words for every 100,000 51job shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3350 shares are currently held short.
However 51job's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of 51job shares, or, against the total number of tradable 51job shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case 51job's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 51job shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0838% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable 51job shares, roughly 84 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 51job.

51job's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 August 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your 51job shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for 51job shares which in turn could have impacted 51job's share price.
Over the last 12 months, 51job's shares have ranged in value from as little as $59.74 up to $79.77. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while 51job's is 0.6741. This would suggest that 51job's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
