Valuing DXC Technology Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of DXC Technology Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
DXC Technology Company'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, DXC Technology Company 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.
DXC Technology Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.28. 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 DXC Technology Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
DXC Technology Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a DXC Technology Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 6.9 million DXC Technology Company shares held short by investors – that's known as DXC Technology Company's "short interest". This figure is 16.8% down from 8.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DXC Technology Company shares can be evaluated.
DXC Technology Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DXC Technology Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DXC Technology Company shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). DXC Technology Company's SIR currently stands at 2.73. In other words for every 100,000 DXC Technology Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2730 shares are currently held short.
However DXC Technology Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DXC Technology Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable DXC Technology Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DXC Technology Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DXC Technology Company shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.031% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DXC Technology Company shares, roughly 31 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 DXC Technology Company.

DXC Technology Company's shares were split on a 1156:1000 basis on 1 June 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1156 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your DXC Technology Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 13.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for DXC Technology Company shares which in turn could have impacted DXC Technology Company's share price.
