Valuing Corteva stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Corteva's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Corteva's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 55x. In other words, Corteva shares trade at around 55x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Corteva's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2852. 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 Corteva's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Corteva's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2.2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Corteva's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

|Operating margin TTM||7.62%|

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 16.4 million Corteva shares held short by investors – that's known as Corteva's "short interest". This figure is 10.9% up from 14.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Corteva shares can be evaluated.
Corteva's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Corteva shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Corteva shares traded daily (recently around 4.3 million). Corteva's SIR currently stands at 3.79. In other words for every 100,000 Corteva shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3790 shares are currently held short.
However Corteva's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Corteva shares, or, against the total number of tradable Corteva shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Corteva's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Corteva shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0219% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Corteva shares, roughly 22 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 Corteva.

Dividend payout ratio: 33.99% of net profits
Recently Corteva has paid out, on average, around 33.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Corteva shareholders could enjoy a 1.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Corteva's case, that would currently equate to about $0.52 per share.
While Corteva's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Corteva may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Corteva's most recent dividend payout was on 15 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
