Valuing Guidewire Software stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Guidewire Software's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Guidewire Software's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 433x. In other words, Guidewire Software shares trade at around 433x 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.
Guidewire Software's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 13.1309. 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 Guidewire Software's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Guidewire Software's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$17.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Guidewire Software's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 3.2 million Guidewire Software shares held short by investors – that's known as Guidewire Software's "short interest". This figure is 9.7% down from 3.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Guidewire Software shares can be evaluated.
Guidewire Software's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Guidewire Software shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Guidewire Software shares traded daily (recently around 604263.13799622). Guidewire Software's SIR currently stands at 5.29. In other words for every 100,000 Guidewire Software shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5290 shares are currently held short.
However Guidewire Software's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Guidewire Software shares, or, against the total number of tradable Guidewire Software shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Guidewire Software's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Guidewire Software shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.044% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Guidewire Software shares, roughly 44 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 Guidewire Software.
