Valuing Materialise stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Materialise's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Materialise's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 597x. In other words, Materialise shares trade at around 597x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.2 million Materialise shares held short by investors – that's known as Materialise's "short interest". This figure is 19.8% up from 1.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Materialise shares can be evaluated.
Materialise's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Materialise shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Materialise shares traded daily (recently around 235903.14341847). Materialise's SIR currently stands at 5.09. In other words for every 100,000 Materialise shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5090 shares are currently held short.
However Materialise's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Materialise shares, or, against the total number of tradable Materialise shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Materialise's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Materialise shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Materialise 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 Materialise.

We're not expecting Materialise to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Materialise's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.65 up to $52.87. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Materialise's is 0.7711. This would suggest that Materialise's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
