Is Dell Technologies under- or over-valued?
Valuing Dell Technologies stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Dell Technologies's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Dell Technologies's P/E ratio
Dell Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Dell Technologies stocks trade at around 21x 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 stocks or simply that they're under-valued.
Dell Technologies's PEG ratio
Dell Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.309. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Dell Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Dell Technologies's EBITDA
Dell Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$10.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Dell Technologies's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 7.4 million Dell Technologies stocks held short by investors – that's known as Dell Technologies's "short interest". This figure is 7.1% down from 7.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dell Technologies stocks can be evaluated.
Dell Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Dell Technologies's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dell Technologies stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dell Technologies stocks traded daily (recently around 1.6 million). Dell Technologies's SIR currently stands at 4.61. In other words for every 100,000 Dell Technologies stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4610 stocks are currently held short.
However Dell Technologies's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dell Technologies stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Dell Technologies stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dell Technologies's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Dell Technologies stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.026% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Dell Technologies stocks, roughly 26 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Dell Technologies.
