Valuing EPAM Systems stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EPAM Systems's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
EPAM 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 69x. In other words, EPAM Systems shares trade at around 69x 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.
EPAM Systems's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.33. 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 EPAM 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.
EPAM Systems's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$390.5 million.

There are currently 996,687 EPAM Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as EPAM Systems's "short interest". This figure is 1% down from 1.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting EPAM Systems shares can be evaluated.
EPAM Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EPAM Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EPAM Systems shares traded daily (recently around 342504.12371134). EPAM Systems's SIR currently stands at 2.91. In other words for every 100,000 EPAM Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2910 shares are currently held short.
However EPAM Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EPAM Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable EPAM Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EPAM Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EPAM Systems shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0185% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EPAM Systems shares, roughly 19 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 EPAM Systems.
