Valuing NextGen Healthcare stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NextGen Healthcare's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NextGen Healthcare's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 112x. In other words, NextGen Healthcare shares trade at around 112x 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.
NextGen Healthcare's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.6998. 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 NextGen Healthcare's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
NextGen Healthcare's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$34.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a NextGen Healthcare's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.6 million NextGen Healthcare shares held short by investors – that's known as NextGen Healthcare's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% up from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NextGen Healthcare shares can be evaluated.
NextGen Healthcare's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NextGen Healthcare shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NextGen Healthcare shares traded daily (recently around 291542.62589928). NextGen Healthcare's SIR currently stands at 5.56. In other words for every 100,000 NextGen Healthcare shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5560 shares are currently held short.
However NextGen Healthcare's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NextGen Healthcare shares, or, against the total number of tradable NextGen Healthcare shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NextGen Healthcare's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NextGen Healthcare shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0423% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NextGen Healthcare shares, roughly 42 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 NextGen Healthcare.

We're not expecting NextGen Healthcare to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
NextGen Healthcare's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 October 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NextGen Healthcare shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NextGen Healthcare shares which in turn could have impacted NextGen Healthcare's share price.
Over the last 12 months, NextGen Healthcare's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.1 up to $18.49. 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 NextGen Healthcare's is 1.0609. This would suggest that NextGen Healthcare's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
