Valuing Sony Group Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sony Group Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sony Group Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Sony Group Corporation shares trade at around 14x 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.
Sony Group Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7929. 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 Sony Group Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Sony Group Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1,431.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Sony Group Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 1.8 million Sony Group Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Sony Group Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 81.9% up from 1.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sony Group Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Sony Group Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sony Group Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sony Group Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 581691.4556962). Sony Group Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.16. In other words for every 100,000 Sony Group Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3160 shares are currently held short.
However Sony Group Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sony Group Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sony Group Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sony Group Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sony Group Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0015% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sony Group Corporation shares, roughly 2 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 Sony Group Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 3.09% of net profits
Recently Sony Group Corporation has paid out, on average, around 3.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sony Group Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sony Group Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $55 per share.
While Sony Group Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Sony Group Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Sony Group Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 December 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Sony Group Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 24 May 2000. 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 Sony Group Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sony Group Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Sony Group Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Sony Group Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $75.55 up to $118.5. 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 Sony Group Corporation's is 0.6742. This would suggest that Sony Group Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
