Valuing SM Energy Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SM Energy Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SM Energy Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, SM Energy Company shares trade at around 20x 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.
SM Energy Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$870 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SM Energy Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 12.4 million SM Energy Company shares held short by investors – that's known as SM Energy Company's "short interest". This figure is 18.8% up from 10.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SM Energy Company shares can be evaluated.
SM Energy Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SM Energy Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SM Energy Company shares traded daily (recently around 4.8 million). SM Energy Company's SIR currently stands at 2.58. In other words for every 100,000 SM Energy Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2580 shares are currently held short.
However SM Energy Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SM Energy Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable SM Energy Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SM Energy Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SM Energy Company shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1471% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SM Energy Company shares, roughly 147 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 SM Energy Company.

We're not expecting SM Energy Company to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
SM Energy Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 April 2005. 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 SM Energy Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SM Energy Company shares which in turn could have impacted SM Energy Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, SM Energy Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.8886 up to $12.243. 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 SM Energy Company's is 6.6063. This would suggest that SM Energy Company's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
