Valuing Sonos stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sonos's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sonos's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 196x. In other words, Sonos shares trade at around 196x 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.
Sonos's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$10.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Sonos's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.5 million Sonos shares held short by investors – that's known as Sonos's "short interest". This figure is 15.8% down from 6.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sonos shares can be evaluated.
Sonos's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sonos shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sonos shares traded daily (recently around 3.0 million). Sonos's SIR currently stands at 1.82. In other words for every 100,000 Sonos shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1820 shares are currently held short.
However Sonos's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sonos shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sonos shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sonos's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sonos shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0691% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sonos shares, roughly 69 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 Sonos.

We're not expecting Sonos to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Sonos's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.58 up to $17.83. 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 Sonos's is 1.5623. This would suggest that Sonos's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
