Is Ford Motor Company under- or over-valued?
Valuing Ford Motor Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ford Motor Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ford Motor Company's P/E ratio
Ford Motor Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Ford Motor Company stocks trade at around 16x 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.
Ford Motor Company's PEG ratio
Ford Motor Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1217. 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 Ford Motor Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Ford Motor Company's EBITDA
Ford Motor Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$10.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ford Motor Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 83.8 million Ford Motor Company stocks held short by investors – that's known as Ford Motor Company's "short interest". This figure is 11.5% up from 75.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ford Motor Company stocks can be evaluated.
Ford Motor Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Ford Motor Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ford Motor Company stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ford Motor Company stocks traded daily (recently around 52.7 million). Ford Motor Company's SIR currently stands at 1.59. In other words for every 100,000 Ford Motor Company stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 1590 stocks are currently held short.
However Ford Motor Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ford Motor Company stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Ford Motor Company stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ford Motor Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Ford Motor Company stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0214% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Ford Motor Company stocks, roughly 21 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 Ford Motor Company.
