Valuing PaySign stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PaySign's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PaySign's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 53x. In other words, PaySign shares trade at around 53x 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.
PaySign's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$6.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a PaySign's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.0 million PaySign shares held short by investors – that's known as PaySign's "short interest". This figure is 8.7% up from 2.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PaySign shares can be evaluated.
PaySign's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PaySign shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PaySign shares traded daily (recently around 367001.2300123). PaySign's SIR currently stands at 8.13. In other words for every 100,000 PaySign shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8130 shares are currently held short.
However PaySign's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PaySign shares, or, against the total number of tradable PaySign shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PaySign's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PaySign shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0965% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PaySign shares, roughly 97 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 PaySign.

We're not expecting PaySign to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, PaySign's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.63 up to $12.44. 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 PaySign's is 1.3486. This would suggest that PaySign's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
