Valuing Cars-com stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cars-com's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cars-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 141x. In other words, Cars-com shares trade at around 141x 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.
Cars-com's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.22. 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 Cars-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.
Cars-com's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $177.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Cars-com's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.5 million Cars-com shares held short by investors – that's known as Cars-com's "short interest". This figure is 9% down from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cars-com shares can be evaluated.
Cars-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cars-com shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cars-com shares traded daily (recently around 408260.11080332). Cars-com's SIR currently stands at 3.61. In other words for every 100,000 Cars-com shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3610 shares are currently held short.
However Cars-com's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cars-com shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cars-com shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cars-com's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cars-com shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0216% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cars-com shares, roughly 22 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 Cars-com.
