Valuing Twitter stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Twitter's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Twitter's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 133x. In other words, Twitter shares trade at around 133x 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.
Twitter's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.64. 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 Twitter's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Twitter's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$947.4 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Twitter's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 22.8 million Twitter shares held short by investors – that's known as Twitter's "short interest". This figure is 3% up from 22.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Twitter shares can be evaluated.
Twitter's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Twitter shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Twitter shares traded daily (recently around 8.3 million). Twitter's SIR currently stands at 2.74. In other words for every 100,000 Twitter shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2740 shares are currently held short.
However Twitter's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Twitter shares, or, against the total number of tradable Twitter shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Twitter's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Twitter shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0294% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Twitter shares, roughly 29 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 Twitter.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Twitter.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 25.25
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Twitter's overall score of 25.25 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 38th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Twitter is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 4.5/100
Twitter's environmental score of 4.5 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Twitter is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 13.25/100
Twitter's social score of 13.25 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Twitter is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 7.49/100
Twitter's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Twitter is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Twitter scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Twitter hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||25.25|
|Total ESG percentile||37.98|
|Environmental score percentile||3|
|Social score percentile||3|
|Governance score percentile||3|
|Level of controversy||3|
