Valuing Benitec Biopharma stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Benitec Biopharma's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Benitec Biopharma's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 52x. In other words, Benitec Biopharma shares trade at around 52x 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.

There are currently 48,403 Benitec Biopharma shares held short by investors – that's known as Benitec Biopharma's "short interest". This figure is 45% up from 33,390 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Benitec Biopharma shares can be evaluated.
Benitec Biopharma's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Benitec Biopharma shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Benitec Biopharma shares traded daily (recently around 4.8 million). Benitec Biopharma's SIR currently stands at 0.01. In other words for every 100,000 Benitec Biopharma shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10 shares are currently held short.
However Benitec Biopharma's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Benitec Biopharma shares, or, against the total number of tradable Benitec Biopharma shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Benitec Biopharma's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Benitec Biopharma shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0017% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Benitec Biopharma shares, roughly 2 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 Benitec Biopharma.

We're not expecting Benitec Biopharma to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Benitec Biopharma's shares were split on a 2:3 basis on 15 April 2020. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Benitec Biopharma shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Benitec Biopharma shares which in turn could have impacted Benitec Biopharma's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Benitec Biopharma's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.52 up to $17.3894. 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 Benitec Biopharma's is 1.8562. This would suggest that Benitec Biopharma's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
