Valuing Mimecast stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Mimecast's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Mimecast's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 104x. In other words, Mimecast shares trade at around 104x 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.
Mimecast's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4417. 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 Mimecast's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Mimecast's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$66.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Mimecast's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.3 million Mimecast shares held short by investors – that's known as Mimecast's "short interest". This figure is 4.9% down from 2.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Mimecast shares can be evaluated.
Mimecast's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mimecast shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mimecast shares traded daily (recently around 953855.23012552). Mimecast's SIR currently stands at 2.39. In other words for every 100,000 Mimecast shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2390 shares are currently held short.
However Mimecast's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mimecast shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mimecast shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mimecast's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mimecast shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0385% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mimecast shares, roughly 39 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Mimecast.

We're not expecting Mimecast to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Mimecast's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.14 up to $59.4799. 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 Mimecast's is 1.3218. This would suggest that Mimecast's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
