Valuing Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum shares trade at around 11x 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.
Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2. 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 Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum shareholders could enjoy a 1.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's case, that would currently equate to about $2.625 per share.
While Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum is investing more in its future growth.

Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 July 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum shares which in turn could have impacted Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's shares have ranged in value from as little as $97.996 up to $179.6811. 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 Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's is 1.0393. This would suggest that Reliance Steel-and-Aluminum's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
