Valuing Marlin Business Services stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Marlin Business Services's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Marlin Business Services's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 744x. In other words, Marlin Business Services shares trade at around 744x 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.
Marlin Business Services's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.83. 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 Marlin Business Services's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 205,781 Marlin Business Services shares held short by investors – that's known as Marlin Business Services's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% down from 211,000 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Marlin Business Services shares can be evaluated.
Marlin Business Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Marlin Business Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Marlin Business Services shares traded daily (recently around 37757.981651376). Marlin Business Services's SIR currently stands at 5.45. In other words for every 100,000 Marlin Business Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5450 shares are currently held short.
However Marlin Business Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Marlin Business Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Marlin Business Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Marlin Business Services's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Marlin Business Services shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0244% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Marlin Business Services shares, roughly 24 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 Marlin Business Services.
