Valuing KB Financial Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of KB Financial Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
KB Financial Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, KB Financial Group shares trade at around 5x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 324,181 KB Financial Group shares held short by investors – that's known as KB Financial Group's "short interest". This figure is 16.2% up from 278,944 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting KB Financial Group shares can be evaluated.
KB Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of KB Financial Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of KB Financial Group shares traded daily (recently around 190694.70588235). KB Financial Group's SIR currently stands at 1.7. In other words for every 100,000 KB Financial Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1700 shares are currently held short.
However KB Financial Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of KB Financial Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable KB Financial Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case KB Financial Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 KB Financial Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable KB Financial Group shares, roughly 0 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 KB Financial Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 23.94% of net profits
Recently KB Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 23.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), KB Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In KB Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.79 per share.
While KB Financial Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that KB Financial Group is investing more in its future growth.
KB Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 16 April 2018. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 December 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").
KB Financial Group's shares were split on a 106:100 basis on 26 December 2001. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 106 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your KB Financial Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 5.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for KB Financial Group shares which in turn could have impacted KB Financial Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, KB Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.93 up to $43.95. 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 KB Financial Group's is 0.8218. This would suggest that KB Financial Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
