Valuing Meta Platforms stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Meta Platforms's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Meta Platforms's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Meta Platforms shares trade at around 15x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Meta Platforms's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9636. 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 Meta Platforms's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Meta Platforms's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $52.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Meta Platforms's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

We're not expecting Meta Platforms to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Meta Platforms's shares have ranged in value from as little as $154.25 up to $384.33. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Meta Platforms's is 1.3761. This would suggest that Meta Platforms's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
