Valuing Nasdaq stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nasdaq's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nasdaq's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Nasdaq shares trade at around 25x 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.
Nasdaq's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.5526. 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 Nasdaq's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Nasdaq's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.5 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Nasdaq's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.7 million Nasdaq shares held short by investors – that's known as Nasdaq's "short interest". This figure is 8.4% down from 2.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Nasdaq shares can be evaluated.
Nasdaq's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nasdaq shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nasdaq shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Nasdaq's SIR currently stands at 2.52. In other words for every 100,000 Nasdaq shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2520 shares are currently held short.
However Nasdaq's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nasdaq shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nasdaq shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nasdaq's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nasdaq shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0232% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nasdaq shares, roughly 23 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 Nasdaq.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Nasdaq.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 16.08
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Nasdaq's overall score of 16.08 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 11st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Nasdaq is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 4.54/100
Nasdaq's environmental score of 4.54 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nasdaq is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 10.23/100
Nasdaq's social score of 10.23 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nasdaq is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 11.31/100
Nasdaq's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Nasdaq is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Nasdaq scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Nasdaq has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||16.08|
|Total ESG percentile||10.96|
|Environmental score percentile||5|
|Social score percentile||5|
|Governance score percentile||5|
|Level of controversy||2|
Dividend payout ratio: 31.77% of net profits
Recently Nasdaq has paid out, on average, around 31.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nasdaq shareholders could enjoy a 1.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nasdaq's case, that would currently equate to about $1.94 per share.
While Nasdaq's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Nasdaq may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Nasdaq's most recent dividend payout was on 26 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Nasdaq's shares have ranged in value from as little as $70.8274 up to $145.83. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Nasdaq's is 0.8351. This would suggest that Nasdaq's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
