Valuing Century Communities stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Century Communities's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Century Communities's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Century Communities shares trade at around 10x 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.
Century Communities's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.45. 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 Century Communities's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Century Communities's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$199.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Century Communities's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.7 million Century Communities shares held short by investors – that's known as Century Communities's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% down from 2.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Century Communities shares can be evaluated.
Century Communities's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Century Communities shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Century Communities shares traded daily (recently around 323016.43026005). Century Communities's SIR currently stands at 8.46. In other words for every 100,000 Century Communities shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8460 shares are currently held short.
However Century Communities's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Century Communities shares, or, against the total number of tradable Century Communities shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Century Communities's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Century Communities shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1143% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Century Communities shares, roughly 114 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 Century Communities.
