Valuing salesforce-com stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of salesforce-com's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
salesforce-com's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 92x. In other words, salesforce-com shares trade at around 92x 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.
salesforce-com's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.3106. 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 salesforce-com's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
salesforce-com's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a salesforce-com's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 15.9 million salesforce-com shares held short by investors – that's known as salesforce-com's "short interest". This figure is 41.5% up from 11.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting salesforce-com shares can be evaluated.
salesforce-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of salesforce-com shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of salesforce-com shares traded daily (recently around 4.8 million). salesforce-com's SIR currently stands at 3.29. In other words for every 100,000 salesforce-com shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3290 shares are currently held short.
However salesforce-com's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of salesforce-com shares, or, against the total number of tradable salesforce-com shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case salesforce-com's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 salesforce-com shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0203% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable salesforce-com shares, roughly 20 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 salesforce-com.

We're not expecting salesforce-com to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
salesforce-com's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 18 April 2013. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your salesforce-com shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for salesforce-com shares which in turn could have impacted salesforce-com's share price.
Over the last 12 months, salesforce-com's shares have ranged in value from as little as $115.29 up to $284.5. 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 salesforce-com's is 1.2847. This would suggest that salesforce-com's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
