Valuing S-and-P Global stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of S-and-P Global's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
S-and-P Global's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, S-and-P Global shares trade at around 33x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
S-and-P Global's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.8653. 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 S-and-P Global's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
S-and-P Global's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$3.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a S-and-P Global's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 2.5 million S-and-P Global shares held short by investors – that's known as S-and-P Global's "short interest". This figure is 18.3% up from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting S-and-P Global shares can be evaluated.
S-and-P Global's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of S-and-P Global shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of S-and-P Global shares traded daily (recently around 824649.01960784). S-and-P Global's SIR currently stands at 3.06. In other words for every 100,000 S-and-P Global shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3060 shares are currently held short.
However S-and-P Global's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of S-and-P Global shares, or, against the total number of tradable S-and-P Global shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case S-and-P Global's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 S-and-P Global shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0105% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable S-and-P Global shares, roughly 11 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 S-and-P Global.

Dividend payout ratio: 23.2% of net profits
Recently S-and-P Global has paid out, on average, around 23.2% 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), S-and-P Global shareholders could enjoy a 0.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In S-and-P Global's case, that would currently equate to about $2.68 per share.
While S-and-P Global's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that S-and-P Global is investing more in its future growth.
S-and-P Global's most recent dividend payout was on 10 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
S-and-P Global's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 May 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 S-and-P Global shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for S-and-P Global shares which in turn could have impacted S-and-P Global's share price.
Over the last 12 months, S-and-P Global's shares have ranged in value from as little as $186.06 up to $379.87. 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 S-and-P Global's is 0.9906. This would suggest that S-and-P Global's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
