Valuing HealthStream stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of HealthStream's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
HealthStream's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 110x. In other words, HealthStream shares trade at around 110x 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.
HealthStream's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 9.41. 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 HealthStream's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
HealthStream's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $37.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a HealthStream's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 567,600 HealthStream shares held short by investors – that's known as HealthStream's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 577,181 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting HealthStream shares can be evaluated.
HealthStream's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HealthStream shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HealthStream shares traded daily (recently around 81318.051575931). HealthStream's SIR currently stands at 6.98. In other words for every 100,000 HealthStream shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6980 shares are currently held short.
However HealthStream's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of HealthStream shares, or, against the total number of tradable HealthStream shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case HealthStream's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HealthStream shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0226% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HealthStream shares, roughly 23 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 HealthStream.
