Is Seadrill stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Seadrill stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Seadrill's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Seadrill's P/E ratio

Seadrill's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Seadrill shares trade at around 1x 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.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Seadrill's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
