Valuing TAL Education Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of TAL Education Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
TAL Education Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1696x. In other words, TAL Education Group shares trade at around 1696x 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.
TAL Education Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.84. 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 TAL Education Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
TAL Education Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$172.2 million.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 12.3 million TAL Education Group shares held short by investors – that's known as TAL Education Group's "short interest". This figure is 38.7% up from 8.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting TAL Education Group shares can be evaluated.
TAL Education Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TAL Education Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TAL Education Group shares traded daily (recently around 3.6 million). TAL Education Group's SIR currently stands at 3.4. In other words for every 100,000 TAL Education Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3400 shares are currently held short.
However TAL Education Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TAL Education Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable TAL Education Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TAL Education Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TAL Education Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TAL Education Group shares, roughly 0 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 TAL Education Group.
