Is Roku under- or over-valued?
Valuing Roku stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Roku's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Roku's P/E ratio
Roku's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 483x. In other words, Roku shares trade at around 483x 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.
Roku's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $173.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Roku's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Roku shares
There are currently 3.8 million Roku shares held short by investors – that's known as Roku's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% up from 3.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Roku shares can be evaluated.
Roku's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Roku's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Roku shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Roku shares traded daily (recently around 4.2 million). Roku's SIR currently stands at 0.9. In other words for every 100,000 Roku shares traded daily on the market, roughly 900 shares are currently held short.
However Roku's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Roku shares, or, against the total number of tradable Roku shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Roku's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Roku shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.033% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Roku shares, roughly 33 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 Roku.

This would suggest that Roku's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
