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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 674x. In other words, Ford Motor Company shares trade at around 674x 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.
Ford Motor Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4799. 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 Ford Motor Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Ford Motor Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $5.8 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 97.3 million Ford Motor Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Ford Motor Company's "short interest". This figure is 1% down from 98.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ford Motor Company shares can be evaluated.
Ford Motor Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ford Motor Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ford Motor Company shares traded daily (recently around 57.2 million). Ford Motor Company's SIR currently stands at 1.7. In other words for every 100,000 Ford Motor Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1700 shares are currently held short.
However Ford Motor Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ford Motor Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ford Motor Company shares (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 shares (for every 100,000 Ford Motor Company shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0275% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ford Motor Company shares, roughly 28 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 Ford Motor Company.

Dividend payout ratio: 78.95% of net profits
Recently Ford Motor Company has paid out, on average, around 78.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.17% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ford Motor Company shareholders could enjoy a 11.17% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ford Motor Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.
Ford Motor Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Ford Motor Company's most recent dividend payout was on 2 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 January 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Ford Motor Company's shares were split on a 1748175:10 basis on 3 August 2000. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1748175 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ford Motor Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ford Motor Company shares which in turn could have impacted Ford Motor Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Ford Motor Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.96 up to $11.69. 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 Ford Motor Company's is 1.2736. This would suggest that Ford Motor Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
