Valuing Energy Transfer stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Energy Transfer's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Energy Transfer's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Energy Transfer shares trade at around 11x 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.
Energy Transfer's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6737. 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 Energy Transfer's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Energy Transfer's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$9.7 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Energy Transfer's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 65.3 million Energy Transfer shares held short by investors – that's known as Energy Transfer's "short interest". This figure is 27.4% up from 51.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Energy Transfer shares can be evaluated.
Energy Transfer's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Energy Transfer shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Energy Transfer shares traded daily (recently around 18.1 million). Energy Transfer's SIR currently stands at 3.61. In other words for every 100,000 Energy Transfer shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3610 shares are currently held short.
However Energy Transfer's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Energy Transfer shares, or, against the total number of tradable Energy Transfer shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Energy Transfer's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Energy Transfer shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0281% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Energy Transfer shares, roughly 28 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 Energy Transfer.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Energy Transfer.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 48.6
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Energy Transfer's overall score of 48.6 (as at 10/01/2020) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 95th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Energy Transfer 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: 1/100
Energy Transfer's environmental score of 1 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Energy Transfer is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 1/100
Energy Transfer's social score of 1 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Energy Transfer is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 1/100
Energy Transfer's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Energy Transfer is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 5/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Energy Transfer scored a 5 out of 5 for controversy – the lowest score possible, reflecting that Energy Transfer's public profile has been damaged by multiple incidents.
|Total ESG score||48.6|
|Total ESG percentile||95.28|
|Environmental score percentile||1|
|Social score percentile||1|
|Governance score percentile||1|
|Level of controversy||5|
Dividend payout ratio: 239.22% of net profits
Recently Energy Transfer has paid out, on average, around 239.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 20.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Energy Transfer shareholders could enjoy a 20.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Energy Transfer's case, that would currently equate to about $1.22 per share.
Energy Transfer's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Energy Transfer's most recent dividend payout was on 19 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Energy Transfer's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 July 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Energy Transfer shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Energy Transfer shares which in turn could have impacted Energy Transfer's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Energy Transfer's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.75 up to $13.86. 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 Energy Transfer's is 2.5554. This would suggest that Energy Transfer's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
