Valuing NVIDIA Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NVIDIA Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NVIDIA Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 85x. In other words, NVIDIA Corporation shares trade at around 85x 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, NVIDIA Corporation's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the semiconductors industry or those of similar companies.
NVIDIA Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.4617. 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 NVIDIA Corporation'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 NVIDIA Corporation's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.
NVIDIA Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.9 billion (£3 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a NVIDIA Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
To put NVIDIA Corporation's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

There are currently 7.3 million NVIDIA Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as NVIDIA Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% down from 7.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting NVIDIA Corporation shares can be evaluated.
NVIDIA Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NVIDIA Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NVIDIA Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 10.2 million). NVIDIA Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.72. In other words for every 100,000 NVIDIA Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 720 shares are currently held short.
To gain some more context, you can compare NVIDIA Corporation's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.
However NVIDIA Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NVIDIA Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable NVIDIA Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NVIDIA Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NVIDIA Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0126% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NVIDIA Corporation shares, roughly 13 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 NVIDIA Corporation.

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 NVIDIA Corporation.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and NVIDIA Corporation's overall score of 19.92 (as at 07/01/2020) is excellent – landing it in it in the 10th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like NVIDIA Corporation 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.).
To gain some more context, you can compare NVIDIA Corporation's total ESG risk score against those of similar companies.
Environmental score: 8.83/100
NVIDIA Corporation's environmental score of 8.83 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NVIDIA Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Dividend payout ratio: 11.96% of net profits
Recently NVIDIA Corporation has paid out, on average, around 11.96% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NVIDIA Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NVIDIA Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.64 per share.
While NVIDIA Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that NVIDIA Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
NVIDIA Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 26 June 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 June 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
NVIDIA Corporation's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
NVIDIA Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 11 September 2007. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NVIDIA Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NVIDIA Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted NVIDIA Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, NVIDIA Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $147.394 up to $460.19. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while NVIDIA Corporation's is 1.35. This would suggest that NVIDIA Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
To put NVIDIA Corporation's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
