Valuing E*TRADE Financial Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of E*TRADE Financial Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
E*TRADE Financial Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares trade at around 15x 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.
E*TRADE Financial Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 99.0861. 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 E*TRADE Financial Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 10.8 million E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as E*TRADE Financial Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% up from 10.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares can be evaluated.
E*TRADE Financial Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.7 million). E*TRADE Financial Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.38. In other words for every 100,000 E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6380 shares are currently held short.
However E*TRADE Financial Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case E*TRADE Financial Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0553% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares, roughly 55 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against E*TRADE Financial Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 16.18% of net profits
Recently E*TRADE Financial Corporation has paid out, on average, around 16.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), E*TRADE Financial Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In E*TRADE Financial Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.
While E*TRADE Financial Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that E*TRADE Financial Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
E*TRADE Financial Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 25 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
E*TRADE Financial Corporation's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 2 June 2010. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for E*TRADE Financial Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted E*TRADE Financial Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, E*TRADE Financial Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.76 up to $57.3. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while E*TRADE Financial Corporation's is 1.2369. This would suggest that E*TRADE Financial Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
