Valuing InterDigital stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of InterDigital's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
InterDigital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 48x. In other words, InterDigital shares trade at around 48x 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.
InterDigital's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7186. 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 InterDigital's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
InterDigital's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$145.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a InterDigital's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.4 million InterDigital shares held short by investors – that's known as InterDigital's "short interest". This figure is 5% down from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting InterDigital shares can be evaluated.
InterDigital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of InterDigital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of InterDigital shares traded daily (recently around 177306.40703518). InterDigital's SIR currently stands at 7.96. In other words for every 100,000 InterDigital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7960 shares are currently held short.
However InterDigital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of InterDigital shares, or, against the total number of tradable InterDigital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case InterDigital's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 InterDigital shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0597% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable InterDigital shares, roughly 60 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 InterDigital.

Dividend payout ratio: 113.47% of net profits
Recently InterDigital has paid out, on average, around 113.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), InterDigital shareholders could enjoy a 2.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In InterDigital's case, that would currently equate to about $1.4 per share.
InterDigital's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
InterDigital's most recent dividend payout was on 28 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, InterDigital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.04 up to $66.165. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while InterDigital's is 1.1318. This would suggest that InterDigital's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
