Valuing Splunk stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Splunk's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Splunk's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 13.7508. 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 Splunk's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 8.1 million Splunk shares held short by investors – that's known as Splunk's "short interest". This figure is 7.5% down from 8.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Splunk shares can be evaluated.
Splunk's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Splunk shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Splunk shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Splunk's SIR currently stands at 4.65. In other words for every 100,000 Splunk shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4650 shares are currently held short.
However Splunk's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Splunk shares, or, against the total number of tradable Splunk shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Splunk's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Splunk shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0606% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Splunk shares, roughly 61 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 Splunk.

We're not expecting Splunk to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Splunk's shares have ranged in value from as little as $93.92 up to $225.89. 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 Splunk's is 1.5632. This would suggest that Splunk's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
