Valuing Pluralsight stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Pluralsight's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Pluralsight's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Pluralsight shares trade at around 9x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 7.9 million Pluralsight shares held short by investors – that's known as Pluralsight's "short interest". This figure is 2.3% down from 8.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Pluralsight shares can be evaluated.
Pluralsight's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Pluralsight shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Pluralsight shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Pluralsight's SIR currently stands at 6.32. In other words for every 100,000 Pluralsight shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6320 shares are currently held short.
However Pluralsight's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Pluralsight shares, or, against the total number of tradable Pluralsight shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Pluralsight's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Pluralsight shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0714% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Pluralsight shares, roughly 71 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 Pluralsight.

We're not expecting Pluralsight to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Pluralsight's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.59 up to $22.69. 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 Pluralsight's is 2.4437. This would suggest that Pluralsight's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
