Valuing Tencent stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Tencent's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Tencent's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 47x. In other words, Tencent shares trade at around 47x recent earnings.
Tencent's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6714. 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 Tencent's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dividend payout ratio: 1.3% of net profits
Recently Tencent has paid out, on average, around 1.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tencent shareholders could enjoy a 0.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tencent's case, that would currently equate to about $0.15 per share.
While Tencent's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Tencent is investing more in its future growth.
Tencent's most recent dividend payout was on 15 June 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 May 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Tencent's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 20 May 2014. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tencent shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tencent shares which in turn could have impacted Tencent's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Tencent's shares have ranged in value from as little as $40.6907 up to $81.35. 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 (PINK average) beta is 1, while Tencent's is 0.9013. This would suggest that Tencent's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
