Valuing BorgWarner stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BorgWarner's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BorgWarner's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, BorgWarner shares trade at around 18x 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.
BorgWarner's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1744. 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 BorgWarner's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
BorgWarner's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a BorgWarner's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 13.9 million BorgWarner shares held short by investors – that's known as BorgWarner's "short interest". This figure is 21.9% down from 17.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BorgWarner shares can be evaluated.
BorgWarner's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BorgWarner shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BorgWarner shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). BorgWarner's SIR currently stands at 5.06. In other words for every 100,000 BorgWarner shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5060 shares are currently held short.
However BorgWarner's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BorgWarner shares, or, against the total number of tradable BorgWarner shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BorgWarner's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BorgWarner shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.076% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BorgWarner shares, roughly 76 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against BorgWarner.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like BorgWarner.
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: 29.51
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and BorgWarner's overall score of 29.51 (as at 10/01/2020) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 39th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like BorgWarner 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: 8.66/100
BorgWarner's environmental score of 8.66 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that BorgWarner is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 14.84/100
BorgWarner's social score of 14.84 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that BorgWarner is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

BorgWarner's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that BorgWarner is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. BorgWarner scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that BorgWarner has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||29.51|
|Total ESG percentile||38.86|
|Environmental score percentile||6|
|Social score percentile||6|
|Governance score percentile||6|
|Level of controversy||2|
Dividend payout ratio: 24.64% of net profits
Recently BorgWarner has paid out, on average, around 24.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BorgWarner shareholders could enjoy a 1.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BorgWarner's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 per share.
While BorgWarner's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that BorgWarner is investing more in its future growth.
BorgWarner's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
BorgWarner's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 December 2013. 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 BorgWarner shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BorgWarner shares which in turn could have impacted BorgWarner's share price.
Over the last 12 months, BorgWarner's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17 up to $46.6. 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 BorgWarner's is 1.7297. This would suggest that BorgWarner's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
