Valuing BHP Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BHP Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BHP 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 17x. In other words, BHP Group shares trade at around 17x 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.
BHP Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$20.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a BHP Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.9 million BHP Group shares held short by investors – that's known as BHP Group's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% up from 1.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BHP Group shares can be evaluated.
BHP Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BHP Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BHP Group shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). BHP Group's SIR currently stands at 1.6. In other words for every 100,000 BHP Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1600 shares are currently held short.
However BHP Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BHP Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable BHP Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BHP Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BHP Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BHP Group 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 BHP Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 393.44% of net profits
Recently BHP Group has paid out, on average, around 393.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BHP Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BHP Group's case, that would currently equate to about $2.2 per share.
BHP Group's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
BHP Group's most recent dividend payout was on 22 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
BHP Group's shares were split on 29 July 2002.
Over the last 12 months, BHP Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.0834 up to $54.41. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while BHP Group's is 0.9401. This would suggest that BHP Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
