Valuing Bandwidth stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Bandwidth's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Bandwidth's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 617x. In other words, Bandwidth shares trade at around 617x 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.

There are currently 3.2 million Bandwidth shares held short by investors – that's known as Bandwidth's "short interest". This figure is 8.3% up from 3.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Bandwidth shares can be evaluated.
Bandwidth's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bandwidth shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bandwidth shares traded daily (recently around 638752.46548323). Bandwidth's SIR currently stands at 5.07. In other words for every 100,000 Bandwidth shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5070 shares are currently held short.
However Bandwidth's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bandwidth shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bandwidth shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bandwidth's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bandwidth shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1738% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bandwidth shares, roughly 174 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 Bandwidth.

We're not expecting Bandwidth to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Bandwidth's shares have ranged in value from as little as $46.515 up to $196.99. 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 Bandwidth's is 0.7489. This would suggest that Bandwidth's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
