Valuing BlackBerry stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BlackBerry's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BlackBerry's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 187x. In other words, BlackBerry shares trade at around 187x 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.
BlackBerry's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$110 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a BlackBerry's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 29.5 million BlackBerry shares held short by investors – that's known as BlackBerry's "short interest". This figure is 3% down from 30.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BlackBerry shares can be evaluated.
BlackBerry's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BlackBerry shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BlackBerry shares traded daily (recently around 4.0 million). BlackBerry's SIR currently stands at 7.31. In other words for every 100,000 BlackBerry shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7310 shares are currently held short.
However BlackBerry's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BlackBerry shares, or, against the total number of tradable BlackBerry shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BlackBerry's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BlackBerry shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0619% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BlackBerry shares, roughly 62 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 BlackBerry.

We're not expecting BlackBerry to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
BlackBerry's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 21 August 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BlackBerry shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BlackBerry shares which in turn could have impacted BlackBerry's share price.
Over the last 12 months, BlackBerry's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.7 up to $6.89. 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 BlackBerry's is 0.9614. This would suggest that BlackBerry's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
