Valuing Huazhu Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Huazhu Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Huazhu Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 79x. In other words, Huazhu Group shares trade at around 79x 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.
Huazhu Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 46.26. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Huazhu Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Huazhu Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$67 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Huazhu Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 14.6 million Huazhu Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Huazhu Group's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% up from 13.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Huazhu Group shares can be evaluated.
Huazhu Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Huazhu Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Huazhu Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Huazhu Group's SIR currently stands at 9.83. In other words for every 100,000 Huazhu Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9830 shares are currently held short.
However Huazhu Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Huazhu Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Huazhu Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Huazhu Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Huazhu Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Huazhu Group shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Huazhu Group.

We're not expecting Huazhu Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Huazhu Group's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 24 May 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Huazhu Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Huazhu Group shares which in turn could have impacted Huazhu Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Huazhu Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.73 up to $64.53. 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 Huazhu Group's is 1.5968. This would suggest that Huazhu Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
