Valuing Fair Isaac Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Fair Isaac Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Fair Isaac Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 57x. In other words, Fair Isaac Corporation shares trade at around 57x 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.
Fair Isaac Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.71. 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 Fair Isaac Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Fair Isaac Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$313.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Fair Isaac Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 693,231 Fair Isaac Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Fair Isaac Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 30.6% up from 530,886 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Fair Isaac Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Fair Isaac Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fair Isaac Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fair Isaac Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 247582.5). Fair Isaac Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.8. In other words for every 100,000 Fair Isaac Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2800 shares are currently held short.
However Fair Isaac Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fair Isaac Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fair Isaac Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fair Isaac Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fair Isaac Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0273% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fair Isaac Corporation shares, roughly 27 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 Fair Isaac Corporation.

Fair Isaac Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 11 March 2004. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fair Isaac Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Fair Isaac Corporation's share price.
