Valuing ePlus stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ePlus's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ePlus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, ePlus shares trade at around 19x 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.
ePlus's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.86. 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 ePlus's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ePlus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $119.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ePlus's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 198,709 ePlus shares held short by investors – that's known as ePlus's "short interest". This figure is 23.2% down from 258,869 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ePlus shares can be evaluated.
ePlus's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ePlus shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ePlus shares traded daily (recently around 81105.714285714). ePlus's SIR currently stands at 2.45. In other words for every 100,000 ePlus shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2450 shares are currently held short.
However ePlus's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ePlus shares, or, against the total number of tradable ePlus shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ePlus's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ePlus shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.018% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ePlus shares, roughly 18 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 ePlus.

We're not expecting ePlus to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
ePlus's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 April 2017. 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 ePlus shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ePlus shares which in turn could have impacted ePlus's share price.
Over the last 12 months, ePlus's shares have ranged in value from as little as $61.98 up to $107.64. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ePlus's is 1.3409. This would suggest that ePlus's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
