Valuing LivePerson stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of LivePerson's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
LivePerson's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.92. 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 LivePerson's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 11.2 million LivePerson shares held short by investors – that's known as LivePerson's "short interest". This figure is 7.1% up from 10.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting LivePerson shares can be evaluated.
LivePerson's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LivePerson shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LivePerson shares traded daily (recently around 769579.71114168). LivePerson's SIR currently stands at 14.54. In other words for every 100,000 LivePerson shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14540 shares are currently held short.
However LivePerson's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LivePerson shares, or, against the total number of tradable LivePerson shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LivePerson's short interest could be expressed as 0.17% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LivePerson shares in existence, roughly 170 shares are currently held short) or 0.2652% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LivePerson shares, roughly 265 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against LivePerson.

We're not expecting LivePerson to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, LivePerson's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.08 up to $63.9. 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 LivePerson's is 1.3748. This would suggest that LivePerson's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
