Is Keysight Technologies under- or over-valued?
Valuing Keysight Technologies stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Keysight Technologies's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Keysight Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 40x. In other words, Keysight Technologies shares trade at around 40x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Keysight Technologies's PEG ratio
Keysight Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.57. 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 Keysight Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Keysight Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

However Keysight Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Keysight Technologies shares, or, against the total number of tradable Keysight Technologies shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Keysight Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Keysight Technologies shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0303% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Keysight Technologies shares, roughly 30 shares are currently held short).
