Valuing Momo stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Momo's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Momo's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Momo shares trade at around 8x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Momo's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.42. 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 Momo'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 6.9 million Momo shares held short by investors – that's known as Momo's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% down from 7.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Momo shares can be evaluated.
Momo's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Momo shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Momo shares traded daily (recently around 4.6 million). Momo's SIR currently stands at 1.5. In other words for every 100,000 Momo shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1500 shares are currently held short.
However Momo's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Momo shares, or, against the total number of tradable Momo shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Momo's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Momo shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Momo shares, roughly 0 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 Momo.

Dividend payout ratio: 4.55% of net profits
Recently Momo has paid out, on average, around 4.55% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Momo shareholders could enjoy a 3.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Momo's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.
While Momo's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Momo is investing more in its future growth.
Momo's most recent dividend payout was on 30 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 April 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Momo's shares were split on a 30:1 basis on 14 November 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 30 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Momo shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 96.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Momo shares which in turn could have impacted Momo's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Momo's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.33 up to $40.87. 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 Momo's is 1.6575. This would suggest that Momo's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
