Valuing CEVA stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of CEVA's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
CEVA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 609x. In other words, CEVA shares trade at around 609x 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.
CEVA's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.2155. 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 CEVA's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
CEVA's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$6.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a CEVA's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 548,062 CEVA shares held short by investors – that's known as CEVA's "short interest". This figure is 15.9% down from 652,055 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CEVA shares can be evaluated.
CEVA's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CEVA shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CEVA shares traded daily (recently around 153950). CEVA's SIR currently stands at 3.56. In other words for every 100,000 CEVA shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3560 shares are currently held short.
However CEVA's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CEVA shares, or, against the total number of tradable CEVA shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CEVA's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CEVA shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0351% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CEVA 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 CEVA.

We're not expecting CEVA to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, CEVA's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.45 up to $46.5. 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 CEVA's is 1.4308. This would suggest that CEVA's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
