Valuing Fluor Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Fluor Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Fluor Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8407. 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 Fluor 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.

There are currently 6.3 million Fluor Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Fluor Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.9% down from 6.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Fluor Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Fluor Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fluor Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fluor Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). Fluor Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.87. In other words for every 100,000 Fluor Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2870 shares are currently held short.
However Fluor Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fluor Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fluor Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fluor Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fluor Corporation shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0507% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fluor Corporation shares, roughly 51 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 Fluor Corporation.

We're not expecting Fluor Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Fluor Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 July 2008. 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 Fluor Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Fluor Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Fluor Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Fluor Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.56 up to $21.895. 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 Fluor Corporation's is 2.7798. This would suggest that Fluor Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
