Valuing easyJet stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of easyJet's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
easyJet'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, easyJet shares trade at around 8x recent earnings.

Dividend payout ratio: 72.32% of net profits
Recently easyJet has paid out, on average, around 72.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.99% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), easyJet shareholders could enjoy a 6.99% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In easyJet's case, that would currently equate to about $0.5 per share.
easyJet'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.
easyJet's most recent dividend payout was on 20 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
easyJet's shares were split on a 11:12 basis on 5 March 2012. So if you had owned 12 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your easyJet shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for easyJet shares which in turn could have impacted easyJet's share price.
Over the last 12 months, easyJet's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.3 up to $19.1518. 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 (PINK average) beta is 1, while easyJet's is 1.9962. This would suggest that easyJet's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
