Valuing Equus Total Return stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Equus Total Return's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Equus Total Return's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Equus Total Return shares trade at around 7x 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.

There are currently 76,518 Equus Total Return shares held short by investors – that's known as Equus Total Return's "short interest". This figure is 3538.5% up from 2,103 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Equus Total Return shares can be evaluated.
Equus Total Return's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Equus Total Return shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Equus Total Return shares traded daily (recently around 110895.65217391). Equus Total Return's SIR currently stands at 0.69. In other words for every 100,000 Equus Total Return shares traded daily on the market, roughly 690 shares are currently held short.
However Equus Total Return's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Equus Total Return shares, or, against the total number of tradable Equus Total Return shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Equus Total Return's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Equus Total Return shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0106% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Equus Total Return shares, roughly 11 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 Equus Total Return.
