Valuing Hudson stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hudson's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hudson's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Hudson shares trade at around 21x 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.
Hudson's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$94 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Hudson's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.2 million Hudson shares held short by investors – that's known as Hudson's "short interest". This figure is 11.1% up from 4.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hudson shares can be evaluated.
Hudson's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hudson shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hudson shares traded daily (recently around 559987.98283262). Hudson's SIR currently stands at 9.32. In other words for every 100,000 Hudson shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9320 shares are currently held short.
However Hudson's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hudson shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hudson shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hudson's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hudson shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.1484% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hudson shares, roughly 148 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 Hudson.

We're not expecting Hudson to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Hudson's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.25 up to $15.87. 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 Hudson's is 1.7182. This would suggest that Hudson's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
