Valuing HollyFrontier Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of HollyFrontier Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
HollyFrontier 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 21x. In other words, HollyFrontier Corporation shares trade at around 21x 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.
HollyFrontier Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.7262. 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 HollyFrontier 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.
HollyFrontier Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$797.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a HollyFrontier Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 10.8 million HollyFrontier Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as HollyFrontier Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 54.2% up from 7.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting HollyFrontier Corporation shares can be evaluated.
HollyFrontier Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of HollyFrontier Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of HollyFrontier Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 3.4 million). HollyFrontier Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.18. In other words for every 100,000 HollyFrontier Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3180 shares are currently held short.
However HollyFrontier Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of HollyFrontier Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable HollyFrontier Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case HollyFrontier Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 HollyFrontier Corporation shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.075% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable HollyFrontier Corporation shares, roughly 75 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 HollyFrontier Corporation.

Recently HollyFrontier Corporation has paid out, on average, around 107.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.64% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HollyFrontier Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 6.64% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HollyFrontier Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.4 per share.
HollyFrontier Corporation'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.
HollyFrontier Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 2 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

This would suggest that HollyFrontier Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
