Valuing Ryanair stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ryanair's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ryanair's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 77x. In other words, Ryanair shares trade at around 77x 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.
Ryanair's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.61. 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 Ryanair'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 2.0 million Ryanair shares held short by investors – that's known as Ryanair's "short interest". This figure is 5.8% up from 1.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ryanair shares can be evaluated.
Ryanair's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ryanair shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ryanair shares traded daily (recently around 740050.37878788). Ryanair's SIR currently stands at 2.64. In other words for every 100,000 Ryanair shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2640 shares are currently held short.
However Ryanair's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ryanair shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ryanair shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ryanair's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ryanair shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ryanair 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 Ryanair.

We're not expecting Ryanair to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Ryanair's shares were split on a 975:1000 basis on 28 October 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 975 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ryanair shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.6% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ryanair shares which in turn could have impacted Ryanair's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Ryanair's shares have ranged in value from as little as $44.44 up to $96.79. 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 Ryanair's is 1.2599. This would suggest that Ryanair's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
