Valuing HC2 stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of HC2's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
HC2's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, HC2 shares trade at around 1x 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.
HC2's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$44.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a HC2's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.9 million HC2 shares held short by investors – that's known as HC2's "short interest". This figure is 8.9% down from 4.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting HC2 shares can be evaluated.
HC2's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HC2 shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HC2 shares traded daily (recently around 333229.53767123). HC2's SIR currently stands at 11.68. In other words for every 100,000 HC2 shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11680 shares are currently held short.
However HC2's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of HC2 shares, or, against the total number of tradable HC2 shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case HC2's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HC2 shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0994% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HC2 shares, roughly 99 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 HC2.
