Valuing SPS Commerce stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SPS Commerce's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SPS Commerce's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 77x. In other words, SPS Commerce shares trade at around 77x 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.
SPS Commerce's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.7449. 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 SPS Commerce's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
SPS Commerce's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$61.8 million.

There are currently 724,652 SPS Commerce shares held short by investors – that's known as SPS Commerce's "short interest". This figure is 41.8% up from 511,133 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SPS Commerce shares can be evaluated.
SPS Commerce's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SPS Commerce shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SPS Commerce shares traded daily (recently around 259731.89964158). SPS Commerce's SIR currently stands at 2.79. In other words for every 100,000 SPS Commerce shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2790 shares are currently held short.
However SPS Commerce's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SPS Commerce shares, or, against the total number of tradable SPS Commerce shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SPS Commerce's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SPS Commerce shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.025% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SPS Commerce shares, roughly 25 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 SPS Commerce.
