Valuing Chesapeake Energy Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Chesapeake Energy Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Chesapeake Energy 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 0x. In other words, Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares trade at around 0x 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.
Chesapeake Energy Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.05. 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 Chesapeake Energy 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.
Chesapeake Energy Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2.3 billion.

There are currently 3.6 million Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Chesapeake Energy Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 76.7% up from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Chesapeake Energy Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). Chesapeake Energy Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.39. In other words for every 100,000 Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1390 shares are currently held short.
However Chesapeake Energy Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chesapeake Energy Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.37% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares in existence, roughly 370 shares are currently held short) or 0.3662% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares, roughly 366 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 Chesapeake Energy Corporation.

Chesapeake Energy Corporation's shares were split on a 1:200 basis on 15 April 2020. So if you had owned 200 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 19900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Chesapeake Energy Corporation's share price.
