Valuing Hilton Worldwide stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Hilton Worldwide's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Hilton Worldwide's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 646x. In other words, Hilton Worldwide shares trade at around 646x 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.
However, Hilton Worldwide's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the lodging industry or those of similar companies.
Hilton Worldwide's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.6617. 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 Hilton Worldwide's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
However, it's sensible to consider Hilton Worldwide's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

There are currently 11.0 million Hilton Worldwide shares held short by investors – that's known as Hilton Worldwide's "short interest". This figure is 5.3% down from 11.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Hilton Worldwide shares can be evaluated.
Hilton Worldwide's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Hilton Worldwide shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Hilton Worldwide shares traded daily (recently around 2.4 million). Hilton Worldwide's SIR currently stands at 4.67. In other words for every 100,000 Hilton Worldwide shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4670 shares are currently held short.
To gain some more context, you can compare Hilton Worldwide's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.
However Hilton Worldwide's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Hilton Worldwide shares, or, against the total number of tradable Hilton Worldwide shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Hilton Worldwide's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Hilton Worldwide shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0404% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Hilton Worldwide shares, roughly 40 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 Hilton Worldwide.

Dividend payout ratio: 12.61% of net profits
Recently Hilton Worldwide has paid out, on average, around 12.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Hilton Worldwide shareholders could enjoy a 0.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Hilton Worldwide's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.
While Hilton Worldwide's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Hilton Worldwide is investing more in its future growth.
Hilton Worldwide's most recent dividend payout was on 31 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Hilton Worldwide's shares were split on a 1000:2052 basis on 4 January 2017. So if you had owned 2052 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Hilton Worldwide shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 105.2% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Hilton Worldwide shares which in turn could have impacted Hilton Worldwide's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Hilton Worldwide's shares have ranged in value from as little as $44.3 up to $116.73. 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 Hilton Worldwide's is 1.3171. This would suggest that Hilton Worldwide's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
