Valuing Experian stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Experian's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Experian's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 54x. In other words, Experian shares trade at around 54x recent earnings.
Experian's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.2796. 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 Experian's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Experian's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Experian's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 63.17% of net profits
Recently Experian has paid out, on average, around 63.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Experian shareholders could enjoy a 1.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Experian's case, that would currently equate to about $0.65 per share.
Experian'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.
Experian's most recent dividend payout was on 31 July 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 June 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Experian's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.455 up to $40.83. 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 (OTCQX average) beta is 1, while Experian's is 0.4066. This would suggest that Experian's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
