Valuing J2 Global stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of J2 Global's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
J2 Global's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, J2 Global shares trade at around 31x 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.
J2 Global's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.84. 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 J2 Global's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
J2 Global's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $658.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a J2 Global's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.3 million J2 Global shares held short by investors – that's known as J2 Global's "short interest". This figure is 4.8% up from 2.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting J2 Global shares can be evaluated.
J2 Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of J2 Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of J2 Global shares traded daily (recently around 294023.98477157). J2 Global's SIR currently stands at 7.88. In other words for every 100,000 J2 Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7880 shares are currently held short.
However J2 Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of J2 Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable J2 Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case J2 Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 J2 Global shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0533% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable J2 Global 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 J2 Global.

We're not expecting J2 Global to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
J2 Global's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 May 2006. 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 J2 Global shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for J2 Global shares which in turn could have impacted J2 Global's share price.
Over the last 12 months, J2 Global's shares have ranged in value from as little as $66.85 up to $147.35. 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 J2 Global's is 1.0328. This would suggest that J2 Global'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).
