Valuing Redwood Trust stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Redwood Trust's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Redwood Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 12x. In other words, Redwood Trust shares trade at around 12x 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.
Redwood Trust's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.39. 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 Redwood Trust'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 9.5 million Redwood Trust shares held short by investors – that's known as Redwood Trust's "short interest". This figure is 10.3% down from 10.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Redwood Trust shares can be evaluated.
Redwood Trust's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Redwood Trust shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Redwood Trust shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Redwood Trust's SIR currently stands at 6.21. In other words for every 100,000 Redwood Trust shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6210 shares are currently held short.
However Redwood Trust's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Redwood Trust shares, or, against the total number of tradable Redwood Trust shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Redwood Trust's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Redwood Trust shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1431% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Redwood Trust shares, roughly 143 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 Redwood Trust.

We're not expecting Redwood Trust to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Redwood Trust's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.065 up to $16.9502. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Redwood Trust's is 1.1375. This would suggest that Redwood Trust's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
