Valuing Super Micro Computer stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Super Micro Computer's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Super Micro Computer's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Super Micro Computer shares trade at around 18x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Super Micro Computer's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.76. 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 Super Micro Computer's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Super Micro Computer's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$129.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Super Micro Computer's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.4 million Super Micro Computer shares held short by investors – that's known as Super Micro Computer's "short interest". This figure is 34.9% down from 2.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Super Micro Computer shares can be evaluated.
Super Micro Computer's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Super Micro Computer shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Super Micro Computer shares traded daily (recently around 321794.17040359). Super Micro Computer's SIR currently stands at 4.46. In other words for every 100,000 Super Micro Computer shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4460 shares are currently held short.
However Super Micro Computer's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Super Micro Computer shares, or, against the total number of tradable Super Micro Computer shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Super Micro Computer's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Super Micro Computer shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0323% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Super Micro Computer shares, roughly 32 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 Super Micro Computer.
