Valuing Halliburton Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Halliburton Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Halliburton Company'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, Halliburton Company 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.
Halliburton Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.4167. 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 Halliburton Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Halliburton Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Halliburton Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 48.6 million Halliburton Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Halliburton Company's "short interest". This figure is 11.9% up from 43.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Halliburton Company shares can be evaluated.
Halliburton Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Halliburton Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Halliburton Company shares traded daily (recently around 12.9 million). Halliburton Company's SIR currently stands at 3.77. In other words for every 100,000 Halliburton Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3770 shares are currently held short.
However Halliburton Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Halliburton Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Halliburton Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Halliburton Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Halliburton Company shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0623% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Halliburton Company shares, roughly 62 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 Halliburton Company.
