Valuing DRDGOLD stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of DRDGOLD's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
DRDGOLD's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, DRDGOLD shares trade at around 8x 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.
DRDGOLD's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a DRDGOLD's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 909,065 DRDGOLD shares held short by investors – that's known as DRDGOLD's "short interest". This figure is 26.3% down from 1.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DRDGOLD shares can be evaluated.
DRDGOLD's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DRDGOLD shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DRDGOLD shares traded daily (recently around 214402.12264151). DRDGOLD's SIR currently stands at 4.24. In other words for every 100,000 DRDGOLD shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4240 shares are currently held short.
However DRDGOLD's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DRDGOLD shares, or, against the total number of tradable DRDGOLD shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DRDGOLD's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DRDGOLD shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0227% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DRDGOLD shares, roughly 23 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against DRDGOLD.

Dividend payout ratio: 72.18% of net profits
Recently DRDGOLD has paid out, on average, around 72.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), DRDGOLD shareholders could enjoy a 5.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In DRDGOLD's case, that would currently equate to about $8 per share.
DRDGOLD'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.
DRDGOLD's most recent dividend payout was on 6 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
DRDGOLD's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 22 July 2007. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your DRDGOLD shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for DRDGOLD shares which in turn could have impacted DRDGOLD's share price.
Over the last 12 months, DRDGOLD's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.92 up to $12.8795. 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 DRDGOLD's is 1.2762. This would suggest that DRDGOLD's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
