Valuing WPX Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of WPX Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
WPX Energy'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, WPX Energy 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.
WPX Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4565. 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 WPX Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
WPX Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.2 billion.

There are currently 27.2 million WPX Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as WPX Energy's "short interest". This figure is 12.5% down from 31.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting WPX Energy shares can be evaluated.
WPX Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of WPX Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of WPX Energy shares traded daily (recently around 8.9 million). WPX Energy's SIR currently stands at 3.05. In other words for every 100,000 WPX Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3050 shares are currently held short.
However WPX Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of WPX Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable WPX Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case WPX Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 WPX Energy shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0675% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable WPX Energy shares, roughly 68 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 WPX Energy.
