Valuing Zscaler stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Zscaler's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Zscaler's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.7987. 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 Zscaler'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 7.4 million Zscaler shares held short by investors – that's known as Zscaler's "short interest". This figure is 6.1% down from 7.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zscaler shares can be evaluated.
Zscaler's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zscaler shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zscaler shares traded daily (recently around 3.0 million). Zscaler's SIR currently stands at 2.46. In other words for every 100,000 Zscaler shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2460 shares are currently held short.
However Zscaler's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zscaler shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zscaler shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zscaler's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zscaler shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0993% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zscaler shares, roughly 99 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 Zscaler.
