Valuing Zendesk stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Zendesk's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Zendesk's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8639. 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 Zendesk'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 7.8 million Zendesk shares held short by investors – that's known as Zendesk's "short interest". This figure is 13.7% down from 9.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zendesk shares can be evaluated.
Zendesk's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zendesk shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zendesk shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Zendesk's SIR currently stands at 5.81. In other words for every 100,000 Zendesk shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5810 shares are currently held short.
However Zendesk's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zendesk shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zendesk shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zendesk's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zendesk shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0767% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zendesk shares, roughly 77 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 Zendesk.

Over the last 12 months, Zendesk's shares have ranged in value from as little as $50.23 up to $154.24. 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 Zendesk's is 1.3745. This would suggest that Zendesk's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
