Valuing Paycom Software stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Paycom Software's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Paycom Software's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 150x. In other words, Paycom Software shares trade at around 150x 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.
Paycom Software's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.3592. 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 Paycom Software's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Paycom Software's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$241.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Paycom Software's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.8 million Paycom Software shares held short by investors – that's known as Paycom Software's "short interest". This figure is 9.7% down from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Paycom Software shares can be evaluated.
Paycom Software's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Paycom Software shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Paycom Software shares traded daily (recently around 392304.91071429). Paycom Software's SIR currently stands at 4.48. In other words for every 100,000 Paycom Software shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4480 shares are currently held short.
However Paycom Software's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Paycom Software shares, or, against the total number of tradable Paycom Software shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Paycom Software's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Paycom Software shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0417% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Paycom Software shares, roughly 42 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 Paycom Software.
