Valuing Nutrien stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nutrien's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nutrien's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 296x. In other words, Nutrien shares trade at around 296x 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.
Nutrien's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$3.2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Nutrien's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.0 million Nutrien shares held short by investors – that's known as Nutrien's "short interest". This figure is 23.3% up from 4.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Nutrien shares can be evaluated.
Nutrien's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nutrien shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nutrien shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Nutrien's SIR currently stands at 3.53. In other words for every 100,000 Nutrien shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3530 shares are currently held short.
However Nutrien's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nutrien shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nutrien shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nutrien's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nutrien shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0088% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nutrien shares, roughly 9 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 Nutrien.

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 Nutrien.
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: 38.23
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Nutrien's overall score of 38.23 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 78th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Nutrien 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: 20.13/100
Nutrien's environmental score of 20.13 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nutrien is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 11.58/100
Nutrien's social score of 11.58 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Nutrien is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 10.01/100
Nutrien's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Nutrien is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Nutrien scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Nutrien hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||38.23|

|Environmental score percentile||4|
|Social score percentile||4|
|Governance score percentile||4|
|Level of controversy||3|
Dividend payout ratio: 109.09% of net profits
Recently Nutrien has paid out, on average, around 109.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Nutrien shareholders could enjoy a 3.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nutrien's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.
Nutrien's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Nutrien's most recent dividend payout was on 16 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Nutrien's shares were split on 2 January 2018. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Nutrien shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new INF% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Nutrien shares which in turn could have impacted Nutrien's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Nutrien's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.9197 up to $50.04. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Nutrien's is 0.6048. This would suggest that Nutrien's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
