Valuing Silicon Laboratories stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Silicon Laboratories's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Silicon Laboratories's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 418x. In other words, Silicon Laboratories shares trade at around 418x 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.
Silicon Laboratories's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4565. 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 Silicon Laboratories's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Silicon Laboratories's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$94.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Silicon Laboratories's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.3 million Silicon Laboratories shares held short by investors – that's known as Silicon Laboratories's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% down from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Silicon Laboratories shares can be evaluated.
Silicon Laboratories's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Silicon Laboratories shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Silicon Laboratories shares traded daily (recently around 276201.45833333). Silicon Laboratories's SIR currently stands at 4.8. In other words for every 100,000 Silicon Laboratories shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4800 shares are currently held short.
However Silicon Laboratories's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Silicon Laboratories shares, or, against the total number of tradable Silicon Laboratories shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Silicon Laboratories's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Silicon Laboratories shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0431% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Silicon Laboratories shares, roughly 43 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 Silicon Laboratories.

We're not expecting Silicon Laboratories to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Silicon Laboratories's shares have ranged in value from as little as $65.09 up to $124.49. 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 Silicon Laboratories's is 1.0751. This would suggest that Silicon Laboratories'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).
