Valuing Jazz Pharmaceuticals stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Jazz Pharmaceuticals's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Jazz Pharmaceuticals's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 50x. In other words, Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares trade at around 50x 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.
Jazz Pharmaceuticals's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.9772. 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 Jazz Pharmaceuticals's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Jazz Pharmaceuticals's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Jazz Pharmaceuticals's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 3.5 million Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Jazz Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 4.9% down from 3.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares can be evaluated.
Jazz Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 496560.42857143). Jazz Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 7. In other words for every 100,000 Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7000 shares are currently held short.
However Jazz Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Jazz Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.064% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Jazz Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 64 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 Jazz Pharmaceuticals.
