Valuing Socket Mobile stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Socket Mobile's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Socket Mobile's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 64x. In other words, Socket Mobile shares trade at around 64x 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.

There are currently 104,996 Socket Mobile shares held short by investors – that's known as Socket Mobile's "short interest". This figure is 89.2% down from 976,552 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Socket Mobile shares can be evaluated.
Socket Mobile's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Socket Mobile shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Socket Mobile shares traded daily (recently around 10.5 million). Socket Mobile's SIR currently stands at 0.01. In other words for every 100,000 Socket Mobile shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10 shares are currently held short.
However Socket Mobile's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Socket Mobile shares, or, against the total number of tradable Socket Mobile shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Socket Mobile's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Socket Mobile shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0219% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Socket Mobile shares, roughly 22 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 Socket Mobile.

We're not expecting Socket Mobile to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Socket Mobile's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 24 October 2008. So if you had owned 10 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 Socket Mobile shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Socket Mobile shares which in turn could have impacted Socket Mobile's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Socket Mobile's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.76 up to $3.74. 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 Socket Mobile's is 0.6105. This would suggest that Socket Mobile's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
