Valuing BRiley Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BRiley Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BRiley Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 29x. In other words, BRiley Financial shares trade at around 29x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 617,297 BRiley Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as BRiley Financial's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 628,144 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BRiley Financial shares can be evaluated.
BRiley Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BRiley Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BRiley Financial shares traded daily (recently around 122237.02970297). BRiley Financial's SIR currently stands at 5.05. In other words for every 100,000 BRiley Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5050 shares are currently held short.
However BRiley Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BRiley Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable BRiley Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BRiley Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BRiley Financial shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0331% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BRiley Financial shares, roughly 33 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against BRiley Financial.

Dividend payout ratio: 48.41% of net profits
Recently BRiley Financial has paid out, on average, around 48.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BRiley Financial shareholders could enjoy a 3.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BRiley Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.
While BRiley Financial's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that BRiley Financial may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
BRiley Financial's most recent dividend payout was on 24 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
BRiley Financial's shares were split on a 101:100 basis on 25 November 2016. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 101 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BRiley Financial shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BRiley Financial shares which in turn could have impacted BRiley Financial's share price.
Over the last 12 months, BRiley Financial's shares have ranged in value from as little as $12.4451 up to $50.54. 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 BRiley Financial's is 1.2742. This would suggest that BRiley Financial's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
