Valuing Zoom stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Zoom's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Zoom's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1502x. In other words, Zoom shares trade at around 1502x 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.
Zoom's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.5984. 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 Zoom's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Zoom's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $62.8 million (£48 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Zoom's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 13.2 million Zoom shares held short by investors – that's known as Zoom's "short interest". This figure is 23.8% up from 10.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Zoom shares can be evaluated.
Zoom's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Zoom shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Zoom shares traded daily (recently around 10.4 million). Zoom's SIR currently stands at 1.27. In other words for every 100,000 Zoom shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1270 shares are currently held short.
To gain some more context, you can compare Zoom's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.
However Zoom's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zoom shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zoom shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zoom's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zoom shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0636% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zoom shares, roughly 64 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 Zoom.
