Valuing Baker Hughes stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Baker Hughes's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Baker Hughes's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 137x. In other words, Baker Hughes shares trade at around 137x 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.
Baker Hughes's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3204. 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 Baker Hughes's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Baker Hughes's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.8 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Baker Hughes's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 38.6 million Baker Hughes shares held short by investors – that's known as Baker Hughes's "short interest". This figure is 128.7% up from 16.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Baker Hughes shares can be evaluated.
Baker Hughes's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Baker Hughes shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Baker Hughes shares traded daily (recently around 8.9 million). Baker Hughes's SIR currently stands at 4.33. In other words for every 100,000 Baker Hughes shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4330 shares are currently held short.
However Baker Hughes's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Baker Hughes shares, or, against the total number of tradable Baker Hughes shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Baker Hughes's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Baker Hughes shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0741% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Baker Hughes shares, roughly 74 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 Baker Hughes.
Dividend payout ratio: 2.06% of net profits
Recently Baker Hughes has paid out, on average, around 2.06% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Baker Hughes shareholders could enjoy a 2.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Baker Hughes's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.
While Baker Hughes's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Baker Hughes is investing more in its future growth.
Baker Hughes's most recent dividend payout was on 19 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Baker Hughes's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.8966 up to $27.66. 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 Baker Hughes's is 1.6339. This would suggest that Baker Hughes's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
