Valuing Wipro stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Wipro's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Wipro's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Wipro shares trade at around 22x 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.
Wipro's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.2645. 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 Wipro'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 11.8 million Wipro shares held short by investors – that's known as Wipro's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% down from 12.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Wipro shares can be evaluated.
Wipro's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Wipro shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Wipro shares traded daily (recently around 2.1 million). Wipro's SIR currently stands at 5.59. In other words for every 100,000 Wipro shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5590 shares are currently held short.
However Wipro's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Wipro shares, or, against the total number of tradable Wipro shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Wipro's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Wipro shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Wipro shares, roughly 0 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 Wipro.

Dividend payout ratio: 6.09% of net profits
Recently Wipro has paid out, on average, around 6.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Wipro shareholders could enjoy a 0.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Wipro's case, that would currently equate to about $0.01 per share.
While Wipro's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Wipro is investing more in its future growth.
Wipro's most recent dividend payout was on 12 February 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 January 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Wipro's shares were split on a 4:3 basis on 15 March 2019. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Wipro shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Wipro shares which in turn could have impacted Wipro's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Wipro's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.52 up to $5.5. 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 Wipro's is 0.5974. This would suggest that Wipro's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
