Valuing OpGen stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of OpGen's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
OpGen's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 0x. In other words, OpGen shares trade at around 0x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 873,384 OpGen shares held short by investors – that's known as OpGen's "short interest". This figure is 47.7% up from 591,396 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting OpGen shares can be evaluated.
OpGen's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of OpGen shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of OpGen shares traded daily (recently around 29.1 million). OpGen's SIR currently stands at 0.03. In other words for every 100,000 OpGen shares traded daily on the market, roughly 30 shares are currently held short.
However OpGen's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of OpGen shares, or, against the total number of tradable OpGen shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case OpGen's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 OpGen shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0226% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable OpGen shares, roughly 23 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 OpGen.

We're not expecting OpGen to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
OpGen's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 28 August 2019. So if you had owned 20 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your OpGen shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for OpGen shares which in turn could have impacted OpGen's share price.
Over the last 12 months, OpGen's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.63 up to $4.05. 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 OpGen's is -0.4468. This would suggest that OpGen's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, OpGen has bucked the trend.
