Valuing PLDT stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PLDT's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PLDT's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, PLDT shares trade at around 15x 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.
PLDT's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $91.3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a PLDT's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 408,722 PLDT shares held short by investors – that's known as PLDT's "short interest". This figure is 18.4% down from 501,012 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PLDT shares can be evaluated.
PLDT's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PLDT shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PLDT shares traded daily (recently around 74584.306569343). PLDT's SIR currently stands at 5.48. In other words for every 100,000 PLDT shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5480 shares are currently held short.
However PLDT's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PLDT shares, or, against the total number of tradable PLDT shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PLDT's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PLDT shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0046% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PLDT shares, roughly 5 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 PLDT.

Dividend payout ratio: 70.69% of net profits
Recently PLDT has paid out, on average, around 70.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PLDT shareholders could enjoy a 5.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PLDT's case, that would currently equate to about $82 per share.
PLDT'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.
PLDT's most recent dividend payout was on 19 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
PLDT's shares were split on 20 August 2013.
Over the last 12 months, PLDT's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.1991 up to $33.61. 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 PLDT's is 0.1225. This would suggest that PLDT's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
