Valuing CoStar Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of CoStar Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
CoStar Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 155x. In other words, CoStar Group shares trade at around 155x 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.
CoStar Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0477. 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 CoStar Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
CoStar Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $467.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a CoStar Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 4.3 million CoStar Group shares held short by investors – that's known as CoStar Group's "short interest". This figure is 3.8% up from 4.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CoStar Group shares can be evaluated.
CoStar Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CoStar Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CoStar Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). CoStar Group's SIR currently stands at 3.1. In other words for every 100,000 CoStar Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3100 shares are currently held short.
However CoStar Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CoStar Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable CoStar Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CoStar Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CoStar Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0109% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CoStar Group shares, roughly 11 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 CoStar Group.
