Valuing Cosan stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cosan's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cosan's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Cosan shares trade at around 32x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.0 million Cosan shares held short by investors – that's known as Cosan's "short interest". This figure is 33.5% down from 3.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cosan shares can be evaluated.
Cosan's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cosan shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cosan shares traded daily (recently around 937211.62790698). Cosan's SIR currently stands at 2.15. In other words for every 100,000 Cosan shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2150 shares are currently held short.
However Cosan's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cosan shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cosan shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cosan's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cosan shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0189% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cosan shares, roughly 19 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 Cosan.

Dividend payout ratio: 97.27% of net profits
Recently Cosan has paid out, on average, around 97.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cosan shareholders could enjoy a 0.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cosan's case, that would currently equate to about $0.11 per share.
Cosan's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Cosan's most recent dividend payout was on 8 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 June 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Cosan's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.032 up to $22.2383. 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 Cosan's is 1.3706. This would suggest that Cosan's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
