Valuing Prudential stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Prudential's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Prudential's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6475. 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 Prudential's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Prudential's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Prudential's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 290,537 Prudential shares held short by investors – that's known as Prudential's "short interest". This figure is 13.8% down from 336,958 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Prudential shares can be evaluated.
Prudential's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Prudential shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Prudential shares traded daily (recently around 188660.38961039). Prudential's SIR currently stands at 1.54. In other words for every 100,000 Prudential shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1540 shares are currently held short.
However Prudential's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Prudential shares, or, against the total number of tradable Prudential shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Prudential's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Prudential shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0002% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Prudential shares, roughly 0 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 Prudential.

Dividend payout ratio: 43.49% of net profits
Recently Prudential has paid out, on average, around 43.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Prudential shareholders could enjoy a 0.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Prudential's case, that would currently equate to about $0.161 per share.
While Prudential's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Prudential may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Prudential's most recent dividend payout was on 27 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Prudential's shares were split on a 1031:1000 basis on 19 September 2021. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1031 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Prudential shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Prudential shares which in turn could have impacted Prudential's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Prudential's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.0889 up to $43.5213. 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 Prudential's is 1.4243. This would suggest that Prudential's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
