Valuing PDC Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PDC Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PDC Energy'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, PDC Energy 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.
PDC Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.02. 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 PDC Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
PDC Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$888.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a PDC Energy's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 9.3 million PDC Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as PDC Energy's "short interest". This figure is 3.4% up from 9.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PDC Energy shares can be evaluated.
PDC Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PDC Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PDC Energy shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). PDC Energy's SIR currently stands at 7.53. In other words for every 100,000 PDC Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7530 shares are currently held short.
However PDC Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PDC Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable PDC Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PDC Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PDC Energy shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.0943% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PDC Energy shares, roughly 94 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against PDC Energy.
