Valuing Lloyds Banking Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lloyds Banking Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lloyds Banking 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 8x. In other words, Lloyds Banking Group 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.
Lloyds Banking Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7095. 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 Lloyds Banking Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.1 million Lloyds Banking Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Lloyds Banking Group's "short interest". This figure is 34.4% down from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lloyds Banking Group shares can be evaluated.
Lloyds Banking Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lloyds Banking Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lloyds Banking Group shares traded daily (recently around 7.0 million). Lloyds Banking Group's SIR currently stands at 0.16. In other words for every 100,000 Lloyds Banking Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 160 shares are currently held short.
However Lloyds Banking Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lloyds Banking Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lloyds Banking Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lloyds Banking Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lloyds Banking Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lloyds Banking 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 Lloyds Banking Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 12.78% of net profits
Recently Lloyds Banking Group has paid out, on average, around 12.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Lloyds Banking Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Lloyds Banking Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.006 per share.
While Lloyds Banking Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Lloyds Banking Group is investing more in its future growth.
Lloyds Banking Group's most recent dividend payout was on 3 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Lloyds Banking Group's shares were split on 5 May 2009.
Over the last 12 months, Lloyds Banking Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.17 up to $2.42. 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 Lloyds Banking Group's is 1.4341. This would suggest that Lloyds Banking Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
