Valuing Green Dot Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Green Dot Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Green Dot 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 62x. In other words, Green Dot Corporation shares trade at around 62x 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.
Green Dot Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.49. 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 Green Dot 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.
Green Dot Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$170.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Green Dot Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.3 million Green Dot Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Green Dot Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.3% down from 2.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Green Dot Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Green Dot Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Green Dot Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Green Dot Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 458021.10453649). Green Dot Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.07. In other words for every 100,000 Green Dot Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5070 shares are currently held short.
However Green Dot Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Green Dot Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Green Dot Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Green Dot Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Green Dot Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0528% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Green Dot Corporation shares, roughly 53 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Green Dot Corporation.
