Valuing Karuna Therapeutics stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Karuna Therapeutics's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Karuna Therapeutics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 0x. In other words, Karuna Therapeutics shares trade at around 0x 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 1.6 million Karuna Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Karuna Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 14.2% up from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Karuna Therapeutics shares can be evaluated.
Karuna Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Karuna Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Karuna Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 207595.8611482). Karuna Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 7.49. In other words for every 100,000 Karuna Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7490 shares are currently held short.
However Karuna Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Karuna Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Karuna Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Karuna Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Karuna Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1299% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Karuna Therapeutics shares, roughly 130 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 Karuna Therapeutics.
