Valuing STAAR Surgical Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of STAAR Surgical Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.4 million STAAR Surgical Company shares held short by investors – that's known as STAAR Surgical Company's "short interest". This figure is 1.8% up from 2.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting STAAR Surgical Company shares can be evaluated.
STAAR Surgical Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of STAAR Surgical Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of STAAR Surgical Company shares traded daily (recently around 412863.36805556). STAAR Surgical Company's SIR currently stands at 5.76. In other words for every 100,000 STAAR Surgical Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5760 shares are currently held short.
However STAAR Surgical Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of STAAR Surgical Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable STAAR Surgical Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case STAAR Surgical Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 STAAR Surgical Company shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0683% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable STAAR Surgical Company shares, roughly 68 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 STAAR Surgical Company.

We're not expecting STAAR Surgical Company to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
STAAR Surgical Company's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 18 May 1992. So if you had owned 2 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 STAAR Surgical Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for STAAR Surgical Company shares which in turn could have impacted STAAR Surgical Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, STAAR Surgical Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.2 up to $89.96. 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 STAAR Surgical Company's is 1.0809. This would suggest that STAAR Surgical Company'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).
