Valuing GWG stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of GWG's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
GWG's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, GWG shares trade at around 9x 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 85,722 GWG shares held short by investors – that's known as GWG's "short interest". This figure is 18.6% up from 72,264 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting GWG shares can be evaluated.
GWG's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of GWG shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of GWG shares traded daily (recently around 6907.4939564867). GWG's SIR currently stands at 12.41. In other words for every 100,000 GWG shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12410 shares are currently held short.
However GWG's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of GWG shares, or, against the total number of tradable GWG shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case GWG's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 GWG shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable GWG shares, roughly 15 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 GWG.

We're not expecting GWG to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, GWG's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.5 up to $10.5. 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 GWG's is -0.1853. This would suggest that GWG's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, GWG has bucked the trend.
