Valuing NETGEAR stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NETGEAR's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NETGEAR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 73x. In other words, NETGEAR shares trade at around 73x 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.
NETGEAR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.84. 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 NETGEAR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
NETGEAR's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$42.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a NETGEAR's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.6 million NETGEAR shares held short by investors – that's known as NETGEAR's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% down from 2.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NETGEAR shares can be evaluated.
NETGEAR's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NETGEAR shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NETGEAR shares traded daily (recently around 272767.58474576). NETGEAR's SIR currently stands at 9.44. In other words for every 100,000 NETGEAR shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9440 shares are currently held short.
However NETGEAR's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NETGEAR shares, or, against the total number of tradable NETGEAR shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NETGEAR's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NETGEAR shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1206% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NETGEAR shares, roughly 121 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 NETGEAR.

We're not expecting NETGEAR to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
NETGEAR's shares were split on a 1612:1000 basis on 2 January 2019. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1612 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NETGEAR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 38% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NETGEAR shares which in turn could have impacted NETGEAR's share price.
Over the last 12 months, NETGEAR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.01 up to $34.93. 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 NETGEAR's is 0.8831. This would suggest that NETGEAR's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
