Valuing Honeywell International stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Honeywell International's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Honeywell International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 22x. In other words, Honeywell International shares trade at around 22x 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.
Honeywell International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5118. 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 Honeywell International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Honeywell International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $7.9 billion (£5.9 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Honeywell International's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 5.8 million Honeywell International shares held short by investors – that's known as Honeywell International's "short interest". This figure is 2% up from 5.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Honeywell International shares can be evaluated.
Honeywell International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Honeywell International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Honeywell International shares traded daily (recently around 3.0 million). Honeywell International's SIR currently stands at 1.91. In other words for every 100,000 Honeywell International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1910 shares are currently held short.
However Honeywell International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Honeywell International shares, or, against the total number of tradable Honeywell International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Honeywell International's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Honeywell International shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0082% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Honeywell International shares, roughly 8 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 Honeywell International.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Honeywell International.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 40.44
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Honeywell International's overall score of 40.44 (as at 10/01/2020) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 75th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Honeywell International is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 17.8/100
Honeywell International's environmental score of 17.8 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Honeywell International is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 22.61/100
Honeywell International's social score of 22.61 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Honeywell International is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 16.53/100
Honeywell International's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Honeywell International is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, Honeywell International scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Honeywell International hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||40.44|
|Total ESG percentile||74.94|
|Environmental score percentile||9|
|Social score percentile||9|
|Governance score percentile||9|
|Level of controversy||3|
Dividend payout ratio: 47.7% of net profits
Recently Honeywell International has paid out, on average, around 47.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Honeywell International shareholders could enjoy a 2.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Honeywell International's case, that would currently equate to about $3.72 per share.
While Honeywell International's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Honeywell International may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Honeywell International's most recent dividend payout was on 4 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Honeywell International's shares were split on a 1032:1000 basis on 29 October 2018. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1032 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Honeywell International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Honeywell International shares which in turn could have impacted Honeywell International's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Honeywell International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $101.08 up to $184.06. 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 Honeywell International's is 1.0563. This would suggest that Honeywell International's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
