Valuing NantKwest stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NantKwest's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NantKwest's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.56. 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 NantKwest's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.9 million NantKwest shares held short by investors – that's known as NantKwest's "short interest". This figure is 27.9% down from 5.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NantKwest shares can be evaluated.
NantKwest's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NantKwest shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NantKwest shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). NantKwest's SIR currently stands at 3.71. In other words for every 100,000 NantKwest shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3710 shares are currently held short.
However NantKwest's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NantKwest shares, or, against the total number of tradable NantKwest shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NantKwest's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NantKwest shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.1547% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NantKwest shares, roughly 155 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against NantKwest.

We're not expecting NantKwest to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
NantKwest's shares were split on a 8:1 basis on 16 August 2012. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 8 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NantKwest shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 87.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NantKwest shares which in turn could have impacted NantKwest's share price.
Over the last 12 months, NantKwest's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.52 up to $45.42. 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 NantKwest's is 2.3862. This would suggest that NantKwest's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
