Valuing Ball Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ball Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ball 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 20x. In other words, Ball Corporation shares trade at around 20x 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.
Ball Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.56. 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 Ball 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.
Ball Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ball Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 22.6% of net profits
Recently Ball Corporation has paid out, on average, around 22.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ball Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ball Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.75 per share.
While Ball Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ball Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Ball Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Ball Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 May 2017. 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 Ball Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ball Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Ball Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Ball Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $67.79 up to $97.7744. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
