Valuing Genworth Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Genworth Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Genworth 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 10x. In other words, Genworth Financial shares trade at around 10x 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.
Genworth Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.72. 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 Genworth 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.
Genworth Financial's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$575 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Genworth Financial's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 13.7 million Genworth Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Genworth Financial's "short interest". This figure is 0.5% down from 13.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Genworth Financial shares can be evaluated.
Genworth Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genworth Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genworth Financial shares traded daily (recently around 8.8 million). Genworth Financial's SIR currently stands at 1.55. In other words for every 100,000 Genworth Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1550 shares are currently held short.
However Genworth Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genworth Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genworth Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genworth Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genworth Financial shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0259% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genworth Financial shares, roughly 26 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 Genworth Financial.
