Valuing Gartner stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Gartner's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Gartner's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 47x. In other words, Gartner shares trade at around 47x 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.
Gartner's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.99. 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 Gartner's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Gartner's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$634.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Gartner's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.6 million Gartner shares held short by investors – that's known as Gartner's "short interest". This figure is 0.5% up from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Gartner shares can be evaluated.
Gartner's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Gartner shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Gartner shares traded daily (recently around 325442.65306122). Gartner's SIR currently stands at 4.9. In other words for every 100,000 Gartner shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4900 shares are currently held short.
However Gartner's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Gartner shares, or, against the total number of tradable Gartner shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Gartner's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Gartner shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0208% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Gartner shares, roughly 21 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 Gartner.

Total ESG risk: 31.86
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Gartner's overall score of 31.86 (as at 08/01/2020) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 56th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Gartner is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 2.67/100
Gartner's environmental score of 2.67 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Gartner is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

We're not expecting Gartner to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Gartner's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 April 1996. 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 Gartner shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gartner shares which in turn could have impacted Gartner's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Gartner's shares have ranged in value from as little as $76.91 up to $165.265. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Gartner's is 1.4521. This would suggest that Gartner's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
