Valuing Fox Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Fox Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Fox 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 17x. In other words, Fox Corporation shares trade at around 17x 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.
Fox Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 14.5533. 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 Fox 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.
Fox Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2.8 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Fox Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.8 million Fox Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Fox Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 27.8% up from 3.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Fox Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Fox Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fox Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fox Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Fox Corporation's SIR currently stands at 2.4. In other words for every 100,000 Fox Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2400 shares are currently held short.
However Fox Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fox Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fox Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fox Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fox Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0245% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fox Corporation shares, roughly 25 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 Fox Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 28.55% of net profits
Recently Fox Corporation has paid out, on average, around 28.55% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Fox Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Fox Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.46 per share.
While Fox Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Fox Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Fox Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
