Valuing DraftKings stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of DraftKings's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
DraftKings's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 395x. In other words, DraftKings shares trade at around 395x 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 20.8 million DraftKings shares held short by investors – that's known as DraftKings's "short interest". This figure is 13.4% up from 18.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DraftKings shares can be evaluated.
DraftKings's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DraftKings shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DraftKings shares traded daily (recently around 26.4 million). DraftKings's SIR currently stands at 0.79. In other words for every 100,000 DraftKings shares traded daily on the market, roughly 790 shares are currently held short.
However DraftKings's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DraftKings shares, or, against the total number of tradable DraftKings shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DraftKings's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DraftKings shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0584% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DraftKings shares, roughly 58 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 DraftKings.
