Valuing Pegasystems stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Pegasystems's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Pegasystems's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.22. 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 Pegasystems'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 1.7 million Pegasystems shares held short by investors – that's known as Pegasystems's "short interest". This figure is 2% down from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Pegasystems shares can be evaluated.
Pegasystems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pegasystems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pegasystems shares traded daily (recently around 264659.62441315). Pegasystems's SIR currently stands at 6.39. In other words for every 100,000 Pegasystems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6390 shares are currently held short.
However Pegasystems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pegasystems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pegasystems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pegasystems's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pegasystems shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0427% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pegasystems shares, roughly 43 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 Pegasystems.

We're not expecting Pegasystems to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Pegasystems's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 April 2014. 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 Pegasystems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Pegasystems shares which in turn could have impacted Pegasystems's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Pegasystems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.01 up to $135.3638. 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 Pegasystems's is 1.2791. This would suggest that Pegasystems's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
