Valuing Telefónica S-A stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Telefónica S-A's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Telefónica S-A's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Telefónica S-A shares trade at around 16x 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.
Telefónica S-A's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.366. 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 Telefónica S-A's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Telefónica S-A's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $11.1 billion.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.9 million Telefónica S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Telefónica S-A's "short interest". This figure is 39.6% down from 4.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Telefónica S-A shares can be evaluated.
Telefónica S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Telefónica S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Telefónica S-A shares traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Telefónica S-A's SIR currently stands at 1.84. In other words for every 100,000 Telefónica S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1840 shares are currently held short.
However Telefónica S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Telefónica S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Telefónica S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Telefónica S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Telefónica S-A shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Telefónica S-A 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 Telefónica S-A.

Dividend payout ratio: 1.12% of net profits
Recently Telefónica S-A has paid out, on average, around 1.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Telefónica S-A shareholders could enjoy a 10.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Telefónica S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
While Telefónica S-A's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Telefónica S-A is investing more in its future growth.
Telefónica S-A's most recent dividend payout was on 12 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Telefónica S-A's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 20 January 2011. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Telefónica S-A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Telefónica S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Telefónica S-A's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Telefónica S-A's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.0606 up to $5.1884. 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 Telefónica S-A's is 1.0664. This would suggest that Telefónica S-A's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
