Valuing Great Ajax stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Great Ajax's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Great Ajax's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Great Ajax shares trade at around 13x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 306,217 Great Ajax shares held short by investors – that's known as Great Ajax's "short interest". This figure is 9.8% down from 339,309 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Great Ajax shares can be evaluated.
Great Ajax's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Great Ajax shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Great Ajax shares traded daily (recently around 63398.964803313). Great Ajax's SIR currently stands at 4.83. In other words for every 100,000 Great Ajax shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4830 shares are currently held short.
However Great Ajax's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Great Ajax shares, or, against the total number of tradable Great Ajax shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Great Ajax's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Great Ajax shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0257% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Great Ajax shares, roughly 26 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 Great Ajax.

Dividend payout ratio: 101.28% of net profits
Recently Great Ajax has paid out, on average, around 101.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Great Ajax shareholders could enjoy a 6.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Great Ajax's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
Great Ajax'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.
Great Ajax's most recent dividend payout was on 30 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Great Ajax's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.7312 up to $14.0867. 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 Great Ajax's is 1.7255. This would suggest that Great Ajax's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
