Valuing Datadog stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Datadog's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Datadog's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1605x. In other words, Datadog shares trade at around 1605x 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.

There are currently 19.6 million Datadog shares held short by investors – that's known as Datadog's "short interest". This figure is 31.4% up from 14.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Datadog shares can be evaluated.
Datadog's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Datadog shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Datadog shares traded daily (recently around 5.8 million). Datadog's SIR currently stands at 3.39. In other words for every 100,000 Datadog shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3390 shares are currently held short.
However Datadog's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Datadog shares, or, against the total number of tradable Datadog shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Datadog's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Datadog shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1155% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Datadog shares, roughly 116 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 Datadog.
