Yes if authentic and worthy of belief.

...if you have an opinion.  Or better maybe, if you have researched and have an opinion...

It seems shady after 1590 not as perfect as prior to that time. Plus, I don't see how this prophesy would help believers in any way except to scare them as to when the Apocalypse is. Either way, Our Lord said no one knows the time or hour, so if we're at the last Pope, then that kind of goes against that.

Those prophesies looked a bit like fortune cookie phrases to me- short, vague phrases that could easily be taken after-the-fact to be identifiable with the pope.  Pope Benedict XVI got two words.  The current pontificate is supposedly the last one.  Although I'm not sure what will be left of the Church after this papacy, I'm not sure it's the end of the world yet either.

Wouldn't it stand to reason that there may be someway to discern the times somehow?

I had a read through the prophecy, and there appear to be a number of popes who don't seem to have any connection with the phrases that are supposed to describe them. For instance, in tribulatione pacis (in the trouble of peace) has no connection to Gregory XV.

Also, St Bernard of Clairvaux, who recorded the miracles of St Malachy, makes no mention of the prophecy.

It's my understanding that these "prophesies" were denounced by the Church as being a fraud. I don't think we should give them any credence. Even if they were real, I don't see how this can help us much except to distract us from the truth. Nothing changes either way, we must continue to pray for the clergy especially the Holy Father and prepare ourselves for Christ's coming for none know the hour.

From a Priest, well over a century ago:
M.J. OBrien, 1880 Wrote:These prophecies have served no purpose. They are absolutely meaningless. The Latin is bad. It is impossible to attribute such absurd triflings... to any holy source. Those who have written in defence of the prophecy... have brought forward scarcely an argument in their favour. Their attempts at explaining the prophecies after 1590 are, I say with all respect, the sorriest trifling.

I think they have been pretty well debunked. No original manuscript exists only what comes from the 16th century supposed copy "discovered" in the Vatican archives. Some of them are just silly; i.e. the one for the great scholar Benedict XIV is "farm animal".
