Valuing Dell Technologies stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Dell Technologies's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Dell Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Dell Technologies shares trade at around 25x 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.
Dell Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0262. 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 Dell Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Dell Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$9.5 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Dell Technologies's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 5.3 million Dell Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Dell Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 22.2% down from 6.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dell Technologies shares can be evaluated.
Dell Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dell Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dell Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Dell Technologies's SIR currently stands at 3.89. In other words for every 100,000 Dell Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3890 shares are currently held short.
However Dell Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dell Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dell Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dell Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dell Technologies shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0206% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dell Technologies shares, roughly 21 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 Dell Technologies.
