Valuing Unisys Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Unisys Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Unisys Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 44x. In other words, Unisys Corporation shares trade at around 44x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 7.0 million Unisys Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Unisys Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.7% up from 6.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Unisys Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Unisys Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Unisys Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Unisys Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 611438.8400703). Unisys Corporation's SIR currently stands at 11.38. In other words for every 100,000 Unisys Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11380 shares are currently held short.
However Unisys Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Unisys Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Unisys Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Unisys Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Unisys Corporation shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.2044% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Unisys Corporation shares, roughly 204 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Unisys Corporation.

However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Unisys Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Unisys Corporation's share price.
