Valuing Halliburton Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Halliburton Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Halliburton 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 17x. In other words, Halliburton Company shares trade at around 17x 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.
Halliburton Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.6894. 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 Halliburton 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.
Halliburton Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $1.6 billion.

There are currently 35.8 million Halliburton Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Halliburton Company's "short interest". This figure is 16.4% down from 42.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Halliburton Company shares can be evaluated.
Halliburton Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Halliburton Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Halliburton Company shares traded daily (recently around 10.9 million). Halliburton Company's SIR currently stands at 3.29. In other words for every 100,000 Halliburton Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3290 shares are currently held short.
However Halliburton Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Halliburton Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Halliburton Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Halliburton Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Halliburton Company shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0456% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Halliburton Company shares, roughly 46 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 Halliburton Company.

Dividend payout ratio: 32.47% of net profits
Recently Halliburton Company has paid out, on average, around 32.47% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Halliburton Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Halliburton Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.18 per share.
While Halliburton Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Halliburton Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Halliburton Company's most recent dividend payout was on 23 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Halliburton Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 17 July 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Halliburton Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Halliburton Company shares which in turn could have impacted Halliburton Company's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Halliburton Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.2112 up to $22.4195. 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 Halliburton Company's is 2.8319. This would suggest that Halliburton Company's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
