Valuing Newmont Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Newmont Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Newmont Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Newmont Corporation shares trade at around 11x 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.
Newmont Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5161. 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 Newmont Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Newmont Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$4.5 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Newmont Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 8.9 million Newmont Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Newmont Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% down from 9.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Newmont Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Newmont Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Newmont Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Newmont Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 5.5 million). Newmont Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.62. In other words for every 100,000 Newmont Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1620 shares are currently held short.
However Newmont Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Newmont Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Newmont Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Newmont Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Newmont Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Newmont Corporation shares, roughly 15 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 Newmont Corporation.

However, indirectly, the new 20% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Newmont Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Newmont Corporation's share price.
