Valuing APA Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of APA Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
APA 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 909x. In other words, APA Corporation shares trade at around 909x 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.
APA Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.301. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into APA Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
APA Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a APA Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 9.0 million APA Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as APA Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.9% down from 9.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting APA Corporation shares can be evaluated.
APA Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of APA Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of APA Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 6.5 million). APA Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.39. In other words for every 100,000 APA Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1390 shares are currently held short.
However APA Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of APA Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable APA Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case APA Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 APA Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0255% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable APA Corporation shares, roughly 26 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 APA Corporation.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 45.73
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and APA Corporation's overall score of 45.73 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 89th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like APA Corporation is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 25.98/100
APA Corporation's environmental score of 25.98 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that APA Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 12.88/100
APA Corporation's social score of 12.88 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that APA Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Dividend payout ratio: 14.29% of net profits
Recently APA Corporation has paid out, on average, around 14.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), APA Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In APA Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.
While APA Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that APA Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
APA Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 22 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
APA Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 January 2004. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your APA Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for APA Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted APA Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, APA Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.4128 up to $24.2654. 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 APA Corporation's is 4.9287. This would suggest that APA Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
