Valuing MRC Global stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of MRC Global's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
MRC Global's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 74x. In other words, MRC Global shares trade at around 74x 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.
MRC Global's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 9.89. 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 MRC Global's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
MRC Global's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$62 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a MRC Global's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 4.5 million MRC Global shares held short by investors – that's known as MRC Global's "short interest". This figure is 9.2% down from 5.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting MRC Global shares can be evaluated.
MRC Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MRC Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MRC Global shares traded daily (recently around 665686.36363636). MRC Global's SIR currently stands at 6.82. In other words for every 100,000 MRC Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6820 shares are currently held short.
However MRC Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MRC Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable MRC Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MRC Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MRC Global shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0665% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MRC Global shares, roughly 67 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 MRC Global.
