Valuing Teradata stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Teradata's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Teradata's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Teradata shares trade at around 21x 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.
Teradata's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.9849. 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 Teradata's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Teradata's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $138 million (£102 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Teradata's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 18.4 million Teradata shares held short by investors – that's known as Teradata's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% up from 18.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Teradata shares can be evaluated.
Teradata's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Teradata shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Teradata shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Teradata's SIR currently stands at 13.77. In other words for every 100,000 Teradata shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13770 shares are currently held short.
However Teradata's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Teradata shares, or, against the total number of tradable Teradata shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Teradata's short interest could be expressed as 0.17% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Teradata shares in existence, roughly 170 shares are currently held short) or 0.2666% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Teradata shares, roughly 267 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 Teradata.
