Valuing Fidelity National Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Fidelity National Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Fidelity National Financial'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, Fidelity National Financial 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.
Fidelity National Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.83. 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 Fidelity National Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Fidelity National Financial's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.4 billion.

There are currently 4.0 million Fidelity National Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Fidelity National Financial's "short interest". This figure is 26% up from 3.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Fidelity National Financial shares can be evaluated.
Fidelity National Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fidelity National Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fidelity National Financial shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Fidelity National Financial's SIR currently stands at 1.97. In other words for every 100,000 Fidelity National Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1970 shares are currently held short.
However Fidelity National Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fidelity National Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fidelity National Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fidelity National Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fidelity National Financial shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0141% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fidelity National Financial shares, roughly 14 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 Fidelity National Financial.

Dividend payout ratio: 34.11% of net profits
Recently Fidelity National Financial has paid out, on average, around 34.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.95% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fidelity National Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.95% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fidelity National Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $1.32 per share.
While Fidelity National Financial's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Fidelity National Financial may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Fidelity National Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Fidelity National Financial's shares were split on a 1385:1000 basis on 2 October 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1385 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Fidelity National Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 27.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fidelity National Financial shares which in turn could have impacted Fidelity National Financial's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Fidelity National Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19 up to $49.28. 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 Fidelity National Financial's is 1.2206. This would suggest that Fidelity National Financial'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).
