Valuing ShotSpotter stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ShotSpotter's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ShotSpotter's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 142x. In other words, ShotSpotter shares trade at around 142x 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.
ShotSpotter's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.6816. 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 ShotSpotter's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ShotSpotter's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$8.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ShotSpotter's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.1 million ShotSpotter shares held short by investors – that's known as ShotSpotter's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ShotSpotter shares can be evaluated.
ShotSpotter's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ShotSpotter shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ShotSpotter shares traded daily (recently around 43085.417468257). ShotSpotter's SIR currently stands at 25.99. In other words for every 100,000 ShotSpotter shares traded daily on the market, roughly 25990 shares are currently held short.
However ShotSpotter's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ShotSpotter shares, or, against the total number of tradable ShotSpotter shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ShotSpotter's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ShotSpotter shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1835% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ShotSpotter shares, roughly 184 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against ShotSpotter.
