Valuing Sasol stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sasol's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sasol's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Sasol shares trade at around 10x 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.
Sasol's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1363. 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 Sasol'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 965,220 Sasol shares held short by investors – that's known as Sasol's "short interest". This figure is 32.8% down from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sasol shares can be evaluated.
Sasol's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sasol shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sasol shares traded daily (recently around 1.0 million). Sasol's SIR currently stands at 0.94. In other words for every 100,000 Sasol shares traded daily on the market, roughly 940 shares are currently held short.
However Sasol's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sasol shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sasol shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sasol's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sasol shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sasol 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 Sasol.

We're not expecting Sasol to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Sasol's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.25 up to $20.38. 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 Sasol's is 2.4365. This would suggest that Sasol's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
