Valuing Occidental Petroleum Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Occidental Petroleum Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Occidental Petroleum 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 24x. In other words, Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares trade at around 24x 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.
Occidental Petroleum Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.16. 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 Occidental Petroleum 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.
Occidental Petroleum Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$7.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Occidental Petroleum Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 32.1 million Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Occidental Petroleum Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 9% down from 35.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Occidental Petroleum Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 28.4 million). Occidental Petroleum Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.13. In other words for every 100,000 Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1130 shares are currently held short.
However Occidental Petroleum Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Occidental Petroleum Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0382% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares, roughly 38 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 Occidental Petroleum Corporation.
