Valuing Zynga stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Zynga's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Zynga's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 139x. In other words, Zynga shares trade at around 139x 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.
Zynga's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.28. 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 Zynga's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Zynga's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$183.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Zynga's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 104.2 million Zynga shares held short by investors – that's known as Zynga's "short interest". This figure is 5.1% up from 99.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zynga shares can be evaluated.
Zynga's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zynga shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zynga shares traded daily (recently around 19.0 million). Zynga's SIR currently stands at 5.49. In other words for every 100,000 Zynga shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5490 shares are currently held short.
However Zynga's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zynga shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zynga shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zynga's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zynga shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1038% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zynga shares, roughly 104 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 Zynga.
