Valuing Genesis Healthcare stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Genesis Healthcare's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Genesis Healthcare's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, Genesis Healthcare shares trade at around 2x 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.
Genesis Healthcare's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$160.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Genesis Healthcare's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 947,502 Genesis Healthcare shares held short by investors – that's known as Genesis Healthcare's "short interest". This figure is 49.1% down from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Genesis Healthcare shares can be evaluated.
Genesis Healthcare's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genesis Healthcare shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genesis Healthcare shares traded daily (recently around 577745.12195122). Genesis Healthcare's SIR currently stands at 1.64. In other words for every 100,000 Genesis Healthcare shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1640 shares are currently held short.
However Genesis Healthcare's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genesis Healthcare shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genesis Healthcare shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genesis Healthcare's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genesis Healthcare shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0121% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genesis Healthcare shares, roughly 12 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 Genesis Healthcare.

We're not expecting Genesis Healthcare to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Genesis Healthcare's shares were split on a 10:11 basis on 4 April 2013. So if you had owned 11 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Genesis Healthcare shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 10% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Genesis Healthcare shares which in turn could have impacted Genesis Healthcare's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Genesis Healthcare's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.5 up to $1.86. 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 Genesis Healthcare's is 1.4501. This would suggest that Genesis Healthcare's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
