Valuing General Motors Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of General Motors Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
General Motors 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 25x. In other words, General Motors Company shares trade at around 25x 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.
General Motors Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8048. 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 General Motors 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.
General Motors Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $10.3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a General Motors Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 15.7 million General Motors Company shares held short by investors – that's known as General Motors Company's "short interest". This figure is 26.9% down from 21.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting General Motors Company shares can be evaluated.
General Motors Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of General Motors Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of General Motors Company shares traded daily (recently around 12.9 million). General Motors Company's SIR currently stands at 1.22. In other words for every 100,000 General Motors Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1220 shares are currently held short.
However General Motors Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of General Motors Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable General Motors Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case General Motors Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 General Motors Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.011% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable General Motors Company shares, roughly 11 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 General Motors Company.
