Valuing McAfee stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of McAfee's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
McAfee's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 36x. In other words, McAfee shares trade at around 36x 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.
However, McAfee's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the software-application industry or those of similar companies.
McAfee's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$669 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a McAfee's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.0 million McAfee shares held short by investors – that's known as McAfee's "short interest". This figure is 10.7% down from 3.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting McAfee shares can be evaluated.
McAfee's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of McAfee shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of McAfee shares traded daily (recently around 783368.84816754). McAfee's SIR currently stands at 3.82. In other words for every 100,000 McAfee shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3820 shares are currently held short.
To gain some more context, you can compare McAfee's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.
However McAfee's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of McAfee shares, or, against the total number of tradable McAfee shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case McAfee's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 McAfee shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable McAfee shares, roughly 0 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 McAfee.

Dividend payout ratio: 13.95% of net profits
Recently McAfee has paid out, on average, around 13.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.68% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), McAfee shareholders could enjoy a 1.68% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In McAfee's case, that would currently equate to about $0.35 per share.
While McAfee's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that McAfee is investing more in its future growth.
McAfee's most recent dividend payout was on 7 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
McAfee's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
