Valuing D-RHorton stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of D-RHorton's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
D-RHorton's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, D-RHorton shares trade at around 14x 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.
D-RHorton's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8864. 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 D-RHorton's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
D-RHorton's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a D-RHorton's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.5 million D-RHorton shares held short by investors – that's known as D-RHorton's "short interest". This figure is 28.4% down from 6.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting D-RHorton shares can be evaluated.
D-RHorton's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of D-RHorton shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of D-RHorton shares traded daily (recently around 3.5 million). D-RHorton's SIR currently stands at 1.31. In other words for every 100,000 D-RHorton shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1310 shares are currently held short.
However D-RHorton's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of D-RHorton shares, or, against the total number of tradable D-RHorton shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case D-RHorton's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 D-RHorton shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0155% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable D-RHorton shares, roughly 16 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 D-RHorton.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like D-RHorton is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 13.47/100

Social score: 15.42/100

Dividend payout ratio: 12.66% of net profits
Recently D-RHorton has paid out, on average, around 12.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.92% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), D-RHorton shareholders could enjoy a 0.92% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In D-RHorton's case, that would currently equate to about $0.7 per share.
While D-RHorton's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that D-RHorton is investing more in its future growth.
D-RHorton's most recent dividend payout was on 24 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
D-RHorton's shares were split on a 4:3 basis on 17 March 2005. So if you had owned 3 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 D-RHorton shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for D-RHorton shares which in turn could have impacted D-RHorton's share price.
Over the last 12 months, D-RHorton's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.51 up to $78.97. 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 D-RHorton's is 1.6613. This would suggest that D-RHorton's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
