Valuing Nordstrom stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Nordstrom's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Nordstrom's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Nordstrom shares trade at around 6x 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.
Nordstrom's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0461. 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 Nordstrom's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Nordstrom's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $22 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Nordstrom's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 31.6 million Nordstrom shares held short by investors – that's known as Nordstrom's "short interest". This figure is 16.6% down from 38.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Nordstrom shares can be evaluated.
Nordstrom's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Nordstrom shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Nordstrom shares traded daily (recently around 6.4 million). Nordstrom's SIR currently stands at 4.98. In other words for every 100,000 Nordstrom shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4980 shares are currently held short.
However Nordstrom's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Nordstrom shares, or, against the total number of tradable Nordstrom shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Nordstrom's short interest could be expressed as 0.2% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Nordstrom shares in existence, roughly 200 shares are currently held short) or 0.2522% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Nordstrom shares, roughly 252 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 Nordstrom.
