Valuing Brooks Automation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Brooks Automation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Brooks Automation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 76x. In other words, Brooks Automation shares trade at around 76x 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.
Brooks Automation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.24. 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 Brooks Automation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Brooks Automation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $68.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Brooks Automation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 35.09% of net profits
Recently Brooks Automation has paid out, on average, around 35.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brooks Automation shareholders could enjoy a 0.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brooks Automation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
While Brooks Automation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Brooks Automation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Brooks Automation's most recent dividend payout was on 22 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Brooks Automation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0 up to $0. 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 Brooks Automation's is 1.7709. This would suggest that Brooks Automation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
