Valuing Westport Fuel Systems stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Westport Fuel Systems's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Westport Fuel Systems's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 764x. In other words, Westport Fuel Systems shares trade at around 764x 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 5.7 million Westport Fuel Systems shares held short by investors – that's known as Westport Fuel Systems's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% down from 5.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Westport Fuel Systems shares can be evaluated.
Westport Fuel Systems's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Westport Fuel Systems shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Westport Fuel Systems shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). Westport Fuel Systems's SIR currently stands at 3.34. In other words for every 100,000 Westport Fuel Systems shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3340 shares are currently held short.
However Westport Fuel Systems's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Westport Fuel Systems shares, or, against the total number of tradable Westport Fuel Systems shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Westport Fuel Systems's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Westport Fuel Systems shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0415% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Westport Fuel Systems shares, roughly 42 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 Westport Fuel Systems.

We're not expecting Westport Fuel Systems to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Westport Fuel Systems's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 24 July 2008. So if you had owned 3 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 Westport Fuel Systems shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Westport Fuel Systems shares which in turn could have impacted Westport Fuel Systems's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Westport Fuel Systems's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.7 up to $4.4. 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 Westport Fuel Systems's is 3.0637. This would suggest that Westport Fuel Systems's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
