Valuing Devon Energy Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Devon Energy Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Devon 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 7x. In other words, Devon Energy Corporation shares trade at around 7x 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.
Devon Energy Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.2174. 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 Devon 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.
Devon Energy Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.4 billion.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 13.2 million Devon Energy Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Devon Energy Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 34.9% down from 20.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Devon Energy Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Devon Energy Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Devon Energy Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Devon Energy Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 11.8 million). Devon Energy Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.12. In other words for every 100,000 Devon Energy Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1120 shares are currently held short.
However Devon Energy Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Devon Energy Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Devon Energy Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Devon Energy Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Devon Energy Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0212% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Devon Energy Corporation 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 Devon Energy Corporation.
