Valuing Catalent stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Catalent's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Catalent's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 81x. In other words, Catalent shares trade at around 81x 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.
Catalent's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.0997. 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 Catalent's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Catalent's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$663.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Catalent's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.6 million Catalent shares held short by investors – that's known as Catalent's "short interest". This figure is 23.9% up from 1.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Catalent shares can be evaluated.
Catalent's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Catalent shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Catalent shares traded daily (recently around 2.7 million). Catalent's SIR currently stands at 0.59. In other words for every 100,000 Catalent shares traded daily on the market, roughly 590 shares are currently held short.
However Catalent's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Catalent shares, or, against the total number of tradable Catalent shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Catalent's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Catalent shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0129% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Catalent shares, roughly 13 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 Catalent.
