Valuing Acacia Communications stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Acacia Communications's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Acacia Communications's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 43x. In other words, Acacia Communications shares trade at around 43x 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.
Acacia Communications's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 58.4. 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 Acacia Communications's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Acacia Communications's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$71.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Acacia Communications's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 4.2 million Acacia Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Acacia Communications's "short interest". This figure is 18.4% down from 5.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Acacia Communications shares can be evaluated.
Acacia Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Acacia Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Acacia Communications shares traded daily (recently around 377346.60633484). Acacia Communications's SIR currently stands at 11.05. In other words for every 100,000 Acacia Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11050 shares are currently held short.
However Acacia Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Acacia Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Acacia Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Acacia Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Acacia Communications shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1073% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Acacia Communications shares, roughly 107 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 Acacia Communications.
