Valuing Globalstar stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Globalstar's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Globalstar's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 47x. In other words, Globalstar shares trade at around 47x 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.
Globalstar's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$35.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Globalstar's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 26.3 million Globalstar shares held short by investors – that's known as Globalstar's "short interest". This figure is 1.8% up from 25.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Globalstar shares can be evaluated.
Globalstar's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Globalstar shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Globalstar shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Globalstar's SIR currently stands at 17.37. In other words for every 100,000 Globalstar shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17370 shares are currently held short.
However Globalstar's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Globalstar shares, or, against the total number of tradable Globalstar shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Globalstar's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Globalstar shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.047% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Globalstar shares, roughly 47 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 Globalstar.
