Valuing NICE stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NICE's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NICE's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 76x. In other words, NICE shares trade at around 76x 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.
NICE's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.3689. 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 NICE's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
NICE's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$437.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a NICE's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.3 million NICE shares held short by investors – that's known as NICE's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 1.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NICE shares can be evaluated.
NICE's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NICE shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NICE shares traded daily (recently around 295800). NICE's SIR currently stands at 4.28. In other words for every 100,000 NICE shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4280 shares are currently held short.
However NICE's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NICE shares, or, against the total number of tradable NICE shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NICE's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NICE shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NICE 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 NICE.

We're not expecting NICE to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
NICE's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 May 2006. 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 NICE shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NICE shares which in turn could have impacted NICE's share price.
Over the last 12 months, NICE's shares have ranged in value from as little as $110.59 up to $255.48. 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 NICE's is 0.2187. This would suggest that NICE's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
