Valuing Alarm-com stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Alarm-com's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Alarm-com's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 63x. In other words, Alarm-com shares trade at around 63x 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.
Alarm-com's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.922. 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 Alarm-com's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Alarm-com's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$94.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Alarm-com's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.0 million Alarm-com shares held short by investors – that's known as Alarm-com's "short interest". This figure is 13.9% up from 2.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Alarm-com shares can be evaluated.
Alarm-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Alarm-com shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Alarm-com shares traded daily (recently around 523663.16695353). Alarm-com's SIR currently stands at 5.81. In other words for every 100,000 Alarm-com shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5810 shares are currently held short.
However Alarm-com's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Alarm-com shares, or, against the total number of tradable Alarm-com shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Alarm-com's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Alarm-com shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1061% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Alarm-com shares, roughly 106 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 Alarm-com.

We're not expecting Alarm-com to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Alarm-com's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32 up to $108.67. 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 Alarm-com's is 1.207. This would suggest that Alarm-com's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
