Valuing Sogou stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sogou's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 717,575 Sogou shares held short by investors – that's known as Sogou's "short interest". This figure is 62.3% down from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sogou shares can be evaluated.
Sogou's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sogou shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sogou shares traded daily (recently around 982979.45205479). Sogou's SIR currently stands at 0.73. In other words for every 100,000 Sogou shares traded daily on the market, roughly 730 shares are currently held short.
However Sogou's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sogou shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sogou shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sogou's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sogou shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sogou shares, roughly 0 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 Sogou.

Over the last 12 months, Sogou's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.95 up to $8.94. 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 Sogou's is 1.4722.
