Valuing CGI stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of CGI's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
CGI's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, CGI shares trade at around 20x 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.
CGI's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.89. 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 CGI's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.8 million CGI shares held short by investors – that's known as CGI's "short interest". This figure is 5.6% up from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CGI shares can be evaluated.
CGI's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CGI shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CGI shares traded daily (recently around 186911.73959445). CGI's SIR currently stands at 9.37. In other words for every 100,000 CGI shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9370 shares are currently held short.
However CGI's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CGI shares, or, against the total number of tradable CGI shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CGI's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CGI shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CGI shares, roughly 0 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 CGI.

We're not expecting CGI to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
CGI's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 January 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CGI shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CGI shares which in turn could have impacted CGI's share price.
Over the last 12 months, CGI's shares have ranged in value from as little as $46.32 up to $87.13. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while CGI's is 0.9425. This would suggest that CGI's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
