Valuing Oasis Petroleum stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Oasis Petroleum's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Oasis Petroleum's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Oasis Petroleum shares trade at around 3x 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.
Oasis Petroleum's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 16.3835. 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 Oasis Petroleum's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Oasis Petroleum's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$450.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Oasis Petroleum's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 81.6 million Oasis Petroleum shares held short by investors – that's known as Oasis Petroleum's "short interest". This figure is 2.4% up from 79.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Oasis Petroleum shares can be evaluated.
Oasis Petroleum's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oasis Petroleum shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oasis Petroleum shares traded daily (recently around 27.3 million). Oasis Petroleum's SIR currently stands at 2.99. In other words for every 100,000 Oasis Petroleum shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2990 shares are currently held short.
However Oasis Petroleum's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oasis Petroleum shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oasis Petroleum shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oasis Petroleum's short interest could be expressed as 0.25% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oasis Petroleum shares in existence, roughly 250 shares are currently held short) or 0.4061% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oasis Petroleum shares, roughly 406 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 Oasis Petroleum.
