Valuing Aviva stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Aviva's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Aviva's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Aviva shares trade at around 6x recent earnings.
Aviva's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0185. 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 Aviva's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 433,923 Aviva shares held short by investors – that's known as Aviva's "short interest". This figure is 2.1% down from 443,420 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Aviva shares can be evaluated.
Aviva's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aviva shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aviva shares traded daily (recently around 289282). Aviva's SIR currently stands at 1.5. In other words for every 100,000 Aviva shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1500 shares are currently held short.
However Aviva's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aviva shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aviva shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aviva's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aviva shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aviva shares, roughly 0 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 Aviva.

Dividend payout ratio: 17.51% of net profits
Recently Aviva has paid out, on average, around 17.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Aviva shareholders could enjoy a 3.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Aviva's case, that would currently equate to about $0.31 per share.
While Aviva's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Aviva is investing more in its future growth.
Aviva's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Aviva's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.72 up to $11.434. 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 (PINK average) beta is 1, while Aviva's is 1.1028. This would suggest that Aviva's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
