Valuing Washington Prime Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Washington Prime Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Washington Prime Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Washington Prime Group shares trade at around 15x 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.
Washington Prime Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$273.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Washington Prime Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 68.8 million Washington Prime Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Washington Prime Group's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 68.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Washington Prime Group shares can be evaluated.
Washington Prime Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Washington Prime Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Washington Prime Group shares traded daily (recently around 3.1 million). Washington Prime Group's SIR currently stands at 22.38. In other words for every 100,000 Washington Prime Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 22380 shares are currently held short.
However Washington Prime Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Washington Prime Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Washington Prime Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Washington Prime Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.37% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Washington Prime Group shares in existence, roughly 370 shares are currently held short) or 0.5697% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Washington Prime Group shares, roughly 570 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against Washington Prime Group.

We're not expecting Washington Prime Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Washington Prime Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.5585 up to $4.69. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
