Valuing Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise 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 12x. In other words, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares trade at around 12x 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.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.6812. 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 Hewlett Packard Enterprise 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.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$4.7 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 34.9 million Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's "short interest". This figure is 17.8% up from 29.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares can be evaluated.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares traded daily (recently around 11.1 million). Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's SIR currently stands at 3.14. In other words for every 100,000 Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3140 shares are currently held short.
However Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0314% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares, roughly 31 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 Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company.

Dividend payout ratio: 51.4% of net profits
Recently Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company has paid out, on average, around 51.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.29% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shareholders could enjoy a 5.29% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's most recent dividend payout was on 7 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's shares were split on a 1289:1000 basis on 1 September 2017. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1289 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 22.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company shares which in turn could have impacted Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.43 up to $17.59. 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 Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company's is 1.2313. This would suggest that Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company'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).
