Valuing Sunoco stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sunoco's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sunoco's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Sunoco shares trade at around 18x 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.
Sunoco's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$596 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Sunoco's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.6 million Sunoco shares held short by investors – that's known as Sunoco's "short interest". This figure is 7.2% up from 2.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sunoco shares can be evaluated.
Sunoco's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sunoco shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sunoco shares traded daily (recently around 419324.59283388). Sunoco's SIR currently stands at 6.14. In other words for every 100,000 Sunoco shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6140 shares are currently held short.
However Sunoco's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sunoco shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sunoco shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sunoco's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sunoco shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0645% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sunoco shares, roughly 65 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Sunoco.

Dividend payout ratio: 210.32% of net profits
Recently Sunoco has paid out, on average, around 210.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sunoco shareholders could enjoy a 11.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sunoco's case, that would currently equate to about $3.3 per share.
Sunoco's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Sunoco's most recent dividend payout was on 19 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Sunoco's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.5033 up to $29.5799. 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 Sunoco's is 1.9008. This would suggest that Sunoco's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
