Valuing Vocera Communications stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vocera Communications's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vocera Communications's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6177. 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 Vocera Communications's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 4.1 million Vocera Communications shares held short by investors – that's known as Vocera Communications's "short interest". This figure is 15% down from 4.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vocera Communications shares can be evaluated.
Vocera Communications's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vocera Communications shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vocera Communications shares traded daily (recently around 375543.27538884). Vocera Communications's SIR currently stands at 10.93. In other words for every 100,000 Vocera Communications shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10930 shares are currently held short.
However Vocera Communications's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vocera Communications shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vocera Communications shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vocera Communications's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vocera Communications shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.177% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vocera Communications shares, roughly 177 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 Vocera Communications.
