Valuing China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
China Petroleum-and-Chemical 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 5x. In other words, China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shares trade at around 5x 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.
China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.5682. 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 China Petroleum-and-Chemical 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 277,948 China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.6% up from 258,359 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shares can be evaluated.
China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 224151.61290323). China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.24. In other words for every 100,000 China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1240 shares are currently held short.
However China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation 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 China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 67.1% of net profits
Recently China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation has paid out, on average, around 67.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 9.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $4.37 per share.
China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation'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.
China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 13 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's shares were split on a 13:10 basis on 2 July 2013. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 13 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 23.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.0666 up to $57.3348. 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 China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation's is 1.0749. This would suggest that China Petroleum-and-Chemical Corporation'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).
