Valuing EOG Resources stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EOG Resources's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
EOG Resources's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 63x. In other words, EOG Resources shares trade at around 63x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
EOG Resources's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.5886. 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 EOG Resources's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
EOG Resources's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$6.3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a EOG Resources's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 9.0 million EOG Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as EOG Resources's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% up from 8.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting EOG Resources shares can be evaluated.
EOG Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EOG Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EOG Resources shares traded daily (recently around 4.9 million). EOG Resources's SIR currently stands at 1.84. In other words for every 100,000 EOG Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1840 shares are currently held short.
However EOG Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EOG Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable EOG Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EOG Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EOG Resources shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0173% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EOG Resources shares, roughly 17 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 EOG Resources.

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 EOG Resources.
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: 50.76
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and EOG Resources's overall score of 50.76 (as at 10/01/2020) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 99th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like EOG Resources 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: 28.68/100
EOG Resources's environmental score of 28.68 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that EOG Resources is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 17/100
EOG Resources's social score of 17 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that EOG Resources is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Dividend payout ratio: 50.45% of net profits
Recently EOG Resources has paid out, on average, around 50.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EOG Resources shareholders could enjoy a 4.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EOG Resources's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.
EOG Resources'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.
EOG Resources's most recent dividend payout was on 30 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
EOG Resources's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 April 2014. 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 EOG Resources shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for EOG Resources shares which in turn could have impacted EOG Resources's share price.
Over the last 12 months, EOG Resources's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.0001 up to $89.54. 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 EOG Resources's is 1.9846. This would suggest that EOG Resources's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
