Valuing VMware stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of VMware's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
VMware's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 29x. In other words, VMware shares trade at around 29x 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.
VMware's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2995. 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 VMware's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
VMware's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a VMware's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 14.5 million VMware shares held short by investors – that's known as VMware's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% up from 14.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting VMware shares can be evaluated.
VMware's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VMware shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VMware shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). VMware's SIR currently stands at 13.05. In other words for every 100,000 VMware shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13050 shares are currently held short.
However VMware's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VMware shares, or, against the total number of tradable VMware shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VMware's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VMware shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.1818% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VMware shares, roughly 182 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against VMware.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like VMware.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 20.86
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and VMware's overall score of 20.86 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 16th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like VMware 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: 5.78/100
VMware's environmental score of 5.78 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that VMware is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 15.73/100
VMware's social score of 15.73 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that VMware is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 11.86/100
VMware's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that VMware is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. VMware scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that VMware has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||20.86|
|Total ESG percentile||15.52|
|Environmental score percentile||9|
|Social score percentile||9|
|Governance score percentile||9|
|Level of controversy||2|
We're not expecting VMware to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, VMware's shares have ranged in value from as little as $126.79 up to $172. 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 VMware's is 0.9088. This would suggest that VMware's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
