Valuing Danaos Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Danaos Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Danaos Corporation'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, Danaos Corporation 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.
Danaos Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.52. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Danaos Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Danaos Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$296.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Danaos Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 707,452 Danaos Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Danaos Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 26.7% down from 965,109 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Danaos Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Danaos Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Danaos Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Danaos Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 631653.57142857). Danaos Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.12. In other words for every 100,000 Danaos Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1120 shares are currently held short.
However Danaos Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Danaos Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Danaos Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Danaos Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Danaos Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.1807% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Danaos Corporation shares, roughly 181 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 Danaos Corporation.

Danaos Corporation's shares were split on a 1:14 basis on 2 May 2019. So if you had owned 14 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 Danaos Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Danaos Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Danaos Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Danaos Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.5 up to $21.7362. 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 Danaos Corporation's is 1.5701. This would suggest that Danaos Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
