Valuing Genie Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Genie Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Genie Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Genie Energy shares trade at around 16x 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.
Genie Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$27.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Genie Energy's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 995,598 Genie Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Genie Energy's "short interest". This figure is 2% up from 975,839 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Genie Energy shares can be evaluated.
Genie Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genie Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genie Energy shares traded daily (recently around 56121.645997745). Genie Energy's SIR currently stands at 17.74. In other words for every 100,000 Genie Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17740 shares are currently held short.
However Genie Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genie Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genie Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genie Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genie Energy shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0482% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genie Energy shares, roughly 48 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Genie Energy.

Dividend payout ratio: 66.09% of net profits
Recently Genie Energy has paid out, on average, around 66.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Genie Energy shareholders could enjoy a 4.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Genie Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.34 per share.
Genie Energy's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Genie Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 11 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Genie Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.4122 up to $9.5024. 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 Genie Energy's is 0.7071. This would suggest that Genie Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
