Valuing Avery Dennison Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Avery Dennison Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Avery Dennison 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 21x. In other words, Avery Dennison Corporation shares trade at around 21x 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.
Avery Dennison Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.3261. 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 Avery Dennison 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.

Recently Avery Dennison Corporation has paid out, on average, around 37.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Avery Dennison Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Avery Dennison Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $2.32 per share.
While Avery Dennison Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Avery Dennison Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Avery Dennison Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 23 December 1996. 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 Avery Dennison Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Avery Dennison Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Avery Dennison Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Avery Dennison Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $88.01 up to $141.09. 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 Avery Dennison Corporation's is 1.1399. This would suggest that Avery Dennison Corporation'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).
