Valuing Daseke stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Daseke's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.0 million Daseke shares held short by investors – that's known as Daseke's "short interest". This figure is 5.6% up from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Daseke shares can be evaluated.
Daseke's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Daseke shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Daseke shares traded daily (recently around 326145.4248366). Daseke's SIR currently stands at 6.12. In other words for every 100,000 Daseke shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6120 shares are currently held short.
However Daseke's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Daseke shares, or, against the total number of tradable Daseke shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Daseke's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Daseke shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0431% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Daseke shares, roughly 43 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 Daseke.

Over the last 12 months, Daseke's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.21 up to $9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
