Valuing Equinor ASA stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Equinor ASA's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Equinor ASA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Equinor ASA shares trade at around 24x 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.
Equinor ASA's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5482. 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 Equinor ASA's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Equinor ASA's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$13.2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Equinor ASA's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 6.5 million Equinor ASA shares held short by investors – that's known as Equinor ASA's "short interest". This figure is 6.3% up from 6.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Equinor ASA shares can be evaluated.
Equinor ASA's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Equinor ASA shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Equinor ASA shares traded daily (recently around 6.1 million). Equinor ASA's SIR currently stands at 1.07. In other words for every 100,000 Equinor ASA shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1070 shares are currently held short.
However Equinor ASA's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Equinor ASA shares, or, against the total number of tradable Equinor ASA shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Equinor ASA's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Equinor ASA shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Equinor ASA shares, roughly 0 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 Equinor ASA.

Dividend payout ratio: 88.95% of net profits
Recently Equinor ASA has paid out, on average, around 88.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Equinor ASA shareholders could enjoy a 2.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Equinor ASA's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.
Equinor ASA'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.
Equinor ASA's most recent dividend payout was on 25 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Equinor ASA's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.9829 up to $19.674. 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 Equinor ASA's is 0.7876. This would suggest that Equinor ASA's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
