Valuing Planet Fitness stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Planet Fitness's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Planet Fitness's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 159x. In other words, Planet Fitness shares trade at around 159x 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.
Planet Fitness's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.69. 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 Planet Fitness's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Planet Fitness's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$177.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Planet Fitness's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 9.0 million Planet Fitness shares held short by investors – that's known as Planet Fitness's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% down from 9.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Planet Fitness shares can be evaluated.
Planet Fitness's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Planet Fitness shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Planet Fitness shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Planet Fitness's SIR currently stands at 5.66. In other words for every 100,000 Planet Fitness shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5660 shares are currently held short.
However Planet Fitness's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Planet Fitness shares, or, against the total number of tradable Planet Fitness shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Planet Fitness's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Planet Fitness shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1252% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Planet Fitness shares, roughly 125 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 Planet Fitness.

We're not expecting Planet Fitness to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Planet Fitness's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.77 up to $88.77. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Planet Fitness's is 1.0971. This would suggest that Planet Fitness'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).
