Valuing Switch stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Switch's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Switch's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 122x. In other words, Switch shares trade at around 122x 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.
Switch's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$225.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Switch's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.8 million Switch shares held short by investors – that's known as Switch's "short interest". This figure is 12.7% up from 5.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Switch shares can be evaluated.
Switch's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Switch shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Switch shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Switch's SIR currently stands at 3.19. In other words for every 100,000 Switch shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3190 shares are currently held short.
However Switch's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Switch shares, or, against the total number of tradable Switch shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Switch's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Switch shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0562% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Switch shares, roughly 56 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 Switch.

Dividend payout ratio: 89.7% of net profits
Recently Switch has paid out, on average, around 89.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Switch shareholders could enjoy a 1.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Switch's case, that would currently equate to about $0.138 per share.
Switch's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Switch's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Switch's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.2195 up to $19.8658. 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 Switch's is 0.7005. This would suggest that Switch's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
