Valuing Blucora stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Blucora's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Blucora's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Blucora shares trade at around 14x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Blucora's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8478. 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 Blucora's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Blucora's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$79.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Blucora's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.4 million Blucora shares held short by investors – that's known as Blucora's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% up from 1.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Blucora shares can be evaluated.
Blucora's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Blucora shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Blucora shares traded daily (recently around 345519.26829268). Blucora's SIR currently stands at 4.1. In other words for every 100,000 Blucora shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4100 shares are currently held short.
However Blucora's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Blucora shares, or, against the total number of tradable Blucora shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Blucora's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Blucora shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0351% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Blucora shares, roughly 35 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 Blucora.

We're not expecting Blucora to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Blucora's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 12 September 2002. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Blucora shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Blucora shares which in turn could have impacted Blucora's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Blucora's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.37 up to $18.41. 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 Blucora's is 1.6867. This would suggest that Blucora's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
