Valuing Yelp stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Yelp's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Yelp's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 161x. In other words, Yelp shares trade at around 161x 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.
Yelp's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4013. 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 Yelp's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Yelp's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $50.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Yelp's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.4 million Yelp shares held short by investors – that's known as Yelp's "short interest". This figure is 3.6% down from 4.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Yelp shares can be evaluated.
Yelp's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Yelp shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Yelp shares traded daily (recently around 727267.65676568). Yelp's SIR currently stands at 6.06. In other words for every 100,000 Yelp shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6060 shares are currently held short.
However Yelp's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Yelp shares, or, against the total number of tradable Yelp shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Yelp's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Yelp shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0686% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Yelp shares, roughly 69 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Yelp.

We're not expecting Yelp to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Yelp's shares have ranged in value from as little as $18.93 up to $43.86. 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 Yelp's is 1.8487. This would suggest that Yelp's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
