Valuing Citrix Systems stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Citrix Systems's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Citrix Systems's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, Citrix Systems shares trade at around 34x 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.
Citrix Systems's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0107. 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 Citrix Systems's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Citrix Systems's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$721.5 million.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.1 million Citrix Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as Citrix Systems's "short interest". This figure is 9.1% down from 5.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Citrix Systems shares can be evaluated.
Citrix Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Citrix Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Citrix Systems shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Citrix Systems's SIR currently stands at 3.08. In other words for every 100,000 Citrix Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3080 shares are currently held short.
However Citrix Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Citrix Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Citrix Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Citrix Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Citrix Systems shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0555% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Citrix Systems shares, roughly 56 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 Citrix Systems.

Recently Citrix Systems has paid out, on average, around 23.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Citrix Systems shareholders could enjoy a 1.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Citrix Systems's case, that would currently equate to about $1.4 per share.
While Citrix Systems's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Citrix Systems is investing more in its future growth.

Citrix Systems's shares were split on a 12558:1000 basis on 1 February 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 12558 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Citrix Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 92% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Citrix Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Citrix Systems's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Citrix Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $99.2271 up to $172.6665. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
