Valuing Suncor Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Suncor Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Suncor Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Suncor Energy shares trade at around 19x 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.
Suncor Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.07. 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 Suncor Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 12.4 million Suncor Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Suncor Energy's "short interest". This figure is 18.3% up from 10.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Suncor Energy shares can be evaluated.
Suncor Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Suncor Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Suncor Energy shares traded daily (recently around 8.9 million). Suncor Energy's SIR currently stands at 1.4. In other words for every 100,000 Suncor Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1400 shares are currently held short.
However Suncor Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Suncor Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Suncor Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Suncor Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Suncor Energy shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Suncor Energy 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 Suncor Energy.

We're not expecting Suncor Energy to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Suncor Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 May 2008. 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 Suncor Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Suncor Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Suncor Energy's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Suncor Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.4276 up to $33.4963. 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 Suncor Energy's is 1.6926. This would suggest that Suncor Energy's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
