Valuing Rio Tinto Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Rio Tinto Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Rio Tinto 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 15x. In other words, Rio Tinto Group shares trade at around 15x 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.
Rio Tinto Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$17.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Rio Tinto Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 9.4 million Rio Tinto Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Rio Tinto Group's "short interest". This figure is 23.1% down from 12.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Rio Tinto Group shares can be evaluated.
Rio Tinto Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Rio Tinto Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Rio Tinto Group shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Rio Tinto Group's SIR currently stands at 4.74. In other words for every 100,000 Rio Tinto Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4740 shares are currently held short.
However Rio Tinto Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Rio Tinto Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Rio Tinto Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Rio Tinto Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Rio Tinto Group shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Rio Tinto 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 Rio Tinto Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 86.68% of net profits
Recently Rio Tinto Group has paid out, on average, around 86.68% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Rio Tinto Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Rio Tinto Group's case, that would currently equate to about $3.86 per share.
Rio Tinto Group'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.
Rio Tinto Group's most recent dividend payout was on 17 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Rio Tinto Group's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 30 April 2010. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Rio Tinto Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Rio Tinto Group shares which in turn could have impacted Rio Tinto Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Rio Tinto Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $34.5018 up to $67.65. 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 Rio Tinto Group's is 0.6228. This would suggest that Rio Tinto Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
