Valuing Murphy USA stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Murphy USA's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Murphy USA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Murphy USA shares trade at around 15x 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.
Murphy USA's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.3034. 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 Murphy USA's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.2 million Murphy USA shares held short by investors – that's known as Murphy USA's "short interest". This figure is 11.7% down from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Murphy USA shares can be evaluated.
Murphy USA's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Murphy USA shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Murphy USA shares traded daily (recently around 237742.85714286). Murphy USA's SIR currently stands at 5.25. In other words for every 100,000 Murphy USA shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5250 shares are currently held short.
However Murphy USA's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Murphy USA shares, or, against the total number of tradable Murphy USA shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Murphy USA's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Murphy USA shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0523% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Murphy USA shares, roughly 52 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 Murphy USA.
