Valuing Nikola Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nikola Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nikola Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1073x. In other words, Nikola Corporation shares trade at around 1073x 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 54.4 million Nikola Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Nikola Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.8% up from 50.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Nikola Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Nikola Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nikola Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nikola Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 23.7 million). Nikola Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.3. In other words for every 100,000 Nikola Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2300 shares are currently held short.
However Nikola Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nikola Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nikola Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nikola Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nikola Corporation shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nikola Corporation shares, roughly 0 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 Nikola Corporation.
