Valuing Taoping stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Taoping's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Taoping's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Taoping shares trade at around 3x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 6,793 Taoping shares held short by investors – that's known as Taoping's "short interest". This figure is 75.2% down from 27,420 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Taoping shares can be evaluated.
Taoping's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Taoping shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Taoping shares traded daily (recently around 679300). Taoping's SIR currently stands at 0.01. In other words for every 100,000 Taoping shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10 shares are currently held short.
However Taoping's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Taoping shares, or, against the total number of tradable Taoping shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Taoping's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Taoping shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0012% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Taoping shares, roughly 1 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 Taoping.

We're not expecting Taoping to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Taoping's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 30 July 2020. So if you had owned 6 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 Taoping shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Taoping shares which in turn could have impacted Taoping's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Taoping's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.86 up to $10.84. 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 Taoping's is 0.7769. This would suggest that Taoping's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
