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 33x. In other words, Keysight Technologies shares trade at around 33x 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 "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 EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Keysight Technologies's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 10.1 million Keysight Technologies shares held short by investors – that's known as Keysight Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 5% up from 9.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Keysight Technologies shares can be evaluated.
Keysight Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Keysight Technologies shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Keysight Technologies shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Keysight Technologies's SIR currently stands at 6.6. In other words for every 100,000 Keysight Technologies shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6600 shares are currently held short.
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 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Keysight Technologies shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0712% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Keysight Technologies shares, roughly 71 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Keysight Technologies.
