Valuing Vivint Solar stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vivint Solar's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vivint Solar's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.01. 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 Vivint Solar's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 11.3 million Vivint Solar shares held short by investors – that's known as Vivint Solar's "short interest". This figure is 18.4% up from 9.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vivint Solar shares can be evaluated.
Vivint Solar's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vivint Solar shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vivint Solar shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Vivint Solar's SIR currently stands at 4.71. In other words for every 100,000 Vivint Solar shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4710 shares are currently held short.
However Vivint Solar's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vivint Solar shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vivint Solar shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vivint Solar's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vivint Solar shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.319% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vivint Solar shares, roughly 319 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 Vivint Solar.

We're not expecting Vivint Solar to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Vivint Solar's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.17 up to $45.3. 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 Vivint Solar's is 1.6156. This would suggest that Vivint Solar's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
