Valuing Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 543,347 Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares held short by investors – that's known as Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's "short interest". This figure is 1.8% down from 553,577 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares can be evaluated.
Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares traded daily (recently around 72834.71849866). Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's SIR currently stands at 7.46. In other words for every 100,000 Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7460 shares are currently held short.
However Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares, roughly 0 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 Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd.

Dividend payout ratio: 1276.68% of net profits
Recently Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd has paid out, on average, around 1276.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shareholders could enjoy a 3.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's case, that would currently equate to about $0.158 per share.
Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd'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.
Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's most recent dividend payout was on 13 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 July 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's shares were split on a 4:5 basis on 7 January 2011. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd shares which in turn could have impacted Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.2182 up to $40.25. 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 Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's is 0.0093. This would suggest that Chunghwa Telecom CoLtd's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
