Valuing TELUS Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of TELUS Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
TELUS Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, TELUS Corporation shares trade at around 11x 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.
TELUS Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4. 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 TELUS Corporation'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 4.3 million TELUS Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as TELUS Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 11.5% down from 4.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting TELUS Corporation shares can be evaluated.
TELUS Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TELUS Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TELUS Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 933029.97811816). TELUS Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.57. In other words for every 100,000 TELUS Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4570 shares are currently held short.
However TELUS Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TELUS Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable TELUS Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TELUS Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TELUS Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TELUS Corporation 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 TELUS Corporation.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like TELUS Corporation is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 6.13/100

Social score: 12.15/100

Dividend payout ratio: 125.88% of net profits
Recently TELUS Corporation has paid out, on average, around 125.88% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.87% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TELUS Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 4.87% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TELUS Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.97 per share.
TELUS Corporation'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.
TELUS Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 4 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
TELUS Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 March 2020. 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 TELUS Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for TELUS Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted TELUS Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, TELUS Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.0621 up to $80.1748. 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 TELUS Corporation's is 0.5997. This would suggest that TELUS Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
