Valuing 2U stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of 2U's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
2U's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 22.7. 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 2U's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 10.2 million 2U shares held short by investors – that's known as 2U's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% up from 10.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting 2U shares can be evaluated.
2U's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of 2U shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of 2U shares traded daily (recently around 742579.7080292). 2U's SIR currently stands at 13.7. In other words for every 100,000 2U shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13700 shares are currently held short.
However 2U's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of 2U shares, or, against the total number of tradable 2U shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case 2U's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 2U shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.1706% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable 2U shares, roughly 171 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 2U.

We're not expecting 2U to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, 2U's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$28.45 up to US$59.74. 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 2U's is 0.9741. This would suggest that 2U's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
