Valuing Galapagos stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Galapagos's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Galapagos's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 61x. In other words, Galapagos shares trade at around 61x 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 964,153 Galapagos shares held short by investors – that's known as Galapagos's "short interest". This figure is 10.5% down from 1.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Galapagos shares can be evaluated.
Galapagos's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Galapagos shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Galapagos shares traded daily (recently around 116584.40145103). Galapagos's SIR currently stands at 8.27. In other words for every 100,000 Galapagos shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8270 shares are currently held short.
However Galapagos's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Galapagos shares, or, against the total number of tradable Galapagos shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Galapagos's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Galapagos shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Galapagos shares, roughly 0 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 Galapagos.

We're not expecting Galapagos to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Galapagos's shares have ranged in value from as little as $94.53 up to $274.03. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Galapagos's is 0.5401. This would suggest that Galapagos's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
