Valuing Tucows stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Tucows's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Tucows's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 61x. In other words, Tucows shares trade at around 61x 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.
Tucows's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.15. 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 Tucows's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Tucows's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$49.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Tucows's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 856,298 Tucows shares held short by investors – that's known as Tucows's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% up from 793,638 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Tucows shares can be evaluated.
Tucows's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tucows shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tucows shares traded daily (recently around 56040.445026178). Tucows's SIR currently stands at 15.28. In other words for every 100,000 Tucows shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15280 shares are currently held short.
However Tucows's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tucows shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tucows shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tucows's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tucows shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1119% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tucows shares, roughly 112 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Tucows.

We're not expecting Tucows to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Tucows's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 31 December 2013. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tucows shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tucows shares which in turn could have impacted Tucows's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Tucows's shares have ranged in value from as little as $42.5 up to $76. 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 Tucows's is 0.9608. This would suggest that Tucows's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
