Valuing Mizuho Financial Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Mizuho Financial Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Mizuho 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 6x. In other words, Mizuho Financial Group shares trade at around 6x 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.
Mizuho Financial Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 29.6377. 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 Mizuho Financial 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 873,254 Mizuho Financial Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Mizuho Financial Group's "short interest". This figure is 27.6% up from 684,145 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Mizuho Financial Group shares can be evaluated.
Mizuho Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mizuho Financial Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mizuho Financial Group shares traded daily (recently around 417824.88038278). Mizuho Financial Group's SIR currently stands at 2.09. In other words for every 100,000 Mizuho Financial Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2090 shares are currently held short.
However Mizuho Financial Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mizuho Financial Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mizuho Financial Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mizuho Financial Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mizuho Financial Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mizuho 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 Mizuho Financial Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 3.22% of net profits
Recently Mizuho Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 3.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mizuho Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mizuho Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.14 per share.
While Mizuho Financial Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Mizuho Financial Group is investing more in its future growth.
Mizuho Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Mizuho Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.8997 up to $3.0997. 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 Mizuho Financial Group's is 0.8419. This would suggest that Mizuho Financial Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
