Valuing Aurora Cannabis stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Aurora Cannabis's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Aurora Cannabis's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Aurora Cannabis shares trade at around 3x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 19.7 million Aurora Cannabis shares held short by investors – that's known as Aurora Cannabis's "short interest". This figure is 12.5% up from 17.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Aurora Cannabis shares can be evaluated.
Aurora Cannabis's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aurora Cannabis shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aurora Cannabis shares traded daily (recently around 3.6 million). Aurora Cannabis's SIR currently stands at 5.53. In other words for every 100,000 Aurora Cannabis shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5530 shares are currently held short.
However Aurora Cannabis's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aurora Cannabis shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aurora Cannabis shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aurora Cannabis's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aurora Cannabis shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aurora Cannabis shares, roughly 0 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 Aurora Cannabis.

We're not expecting Aurora Cannabis to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Aurora Cannabis's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 11 May 2020. So if you had owned 12 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Aurora Cannabis shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aurora Cannabis shares which in turn could have impacted Aurora Cannabis's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Aurora Cannabis's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.6 up to $19.68. 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 Aurora Cannabis's is 1.3317. This would suggest that Aurora Cannabis's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
