Valuing Brookfield Asset Management stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Brookfield Asset Management's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Brookfield Asset Management's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 42x. In other words, Brookfield Asset Management shares trade at around 42x 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.
Brookfield Asset Management's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.84. 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 Brookfield Asset Management's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Brookfield Asset Management's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$15.5 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Brookfield Asset Management's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 18.7 million Brookfield Asset Management shares held short by investors – that's known as Brookfield Asset Management's "short interest". This figure is 9% up from 17.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Brookfield Asset Management shares can be evaluated.
Brookfield Asset Management's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Brookfield Asset Management shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Brookfield Asset Management shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Brookfield Asset Management's SIR currently stands at 9.88. In other words for every 100,000 Brookfield Asset Management shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9880 shares are currently held short.
However Brookfield Asset Management's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Brookfield Asset Management shares, or, against the total number of tradable Brookfield Asset Management shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Brookfield Asset Management's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Brookfield Asset Management shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Brookfield Asset Management shares, roughly 0 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 Brookfield Asset Management.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 31.69

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Brookfield Asset Management 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.).
Environmental score: 1.89/100
Brookfield Asset Management's environmental score of 1.89 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Brookfield Asset Management is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 18.64/100

Dividend payout ratio: 99.3% of net profits
Recently Brookfield Asset Management has paid out, on average, around 99.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.42% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brookfield Asset Management shareholders could enjoy a 1.42% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brookfield Asset Management's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.
Brookfield Asset Management's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Brookfield Asset Management's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Brookfield Asset Management's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 2 April 2020. 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 Brookfield Asset Management shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Brookfield Asset Management shares which in turn could have impacted Brookfield Asset Management's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Brookfield Asset Management's shares have ranged in value from as little as $27.25 up to $68.41. 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 Brookfield Asset Management's is 1.0847. This would suggest that Brookfield Asset Management'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).
