Valuing Oracle Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Oracle Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Oracle 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 19x. In other words, Oracle Corporation shares trade at around 19x 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.
Oracle Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.3771. 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 Oracle 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.
Oracle Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $18.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Oracle Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 33.3 million Oracle Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Oracle Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 10.2% down from 37.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Oracle Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Oracle Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oracle Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oracle Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 7.0 million). Oracle Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.73. In other words for every 100,000 Oracle Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4730 shares are currently held short.
However Oracle Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oracle Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oracle Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oracle Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oracle Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0209% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oracle Corporation shares, roughly 21 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 Oracle Corporation.

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 Oracle Corporation.
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: 17.18
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Oracle Corporation's overall score of 17.18 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 17th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Oracle Corporation 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: 1.93/100
Oracle Corporation's environmental score of 1.93 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Oracle Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 10.18/100
Oracle Corporation's social score of 10.18 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Oracle Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 6.07/100
Oracle Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Oracle Corporation 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. Oracle Corporation scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Oracle Corporation hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||17.18|
|Total ESG percentile||17.18|
|Environmental score percentile||3|
|Social score percentile||3|
|Governance score percentile||3|
|Level of controversy||3|
Dividend payout ratio: 20.98% of net profits
Recently Oracle Corporation has paid out, on average, around 20.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Oracle Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Oracle Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.12 per share.
While Oracle Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Oracle Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Oracle Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 28 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Oracle Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 October 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Oracle Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Oracle Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Oracle Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Oracle Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $54.4921 up to $91.775. 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 Oracle Corporation's is 0.7959. This would suggest that Oracle Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
