Valuing Shell stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Shell's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Shell's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 43x. In other words, Shell shares trade at around 43x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Shell's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4071. 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 Shell's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Shell's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $30.7 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Shell's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 52.7% of net profits
Recently Shell has paid out, on average, around 52.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Shell shareholders could enjoy a 3.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Shell's case, that would currently equate to about $0.82 per share.
Shell'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.
Shell's most recent dividend payout was on 19 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Shell's shares were split on a 100:116 basis on 19 July 2005. So if you had owned 116 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 100 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Shell shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 16% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Shell shares which in turn could have impacted Shell's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Shell's shares have ranged in value from as little as $50.29 up to $51.16. 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 Shell's is 1.0449. This would suggest that Shell'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).
