Valuing Woori Financial Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Woori Financial Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Woori Financial 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 5x. In other words, Woori Financial Group shares trade at around 5x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 51,202 Woori Financial Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Woori Financial Group's "short interest". This figure is 31.2% up from 39,013 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Woori Financial Group shares can be evaluated.
Woori Financial Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Woori Financial Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Woori Financial Group shares traded daily (recently around 32821.794871795). Woori Financial Group's SIR currently stands at 1.56. In other words for every 100,000 Woori Financial Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1560 shares are currently held short.
However Woori Financial Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Woori Financial Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Woori Financial Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Woori Financial Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Woori Financial Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Woori Financial 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 Woori Financial Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 37.03% of net profits
Recently Woori Financial Group has paid out, on average, around 37.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Woori Financial Group shareholders could enjoy a 6.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Woori Financial Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.
While Woori Financial Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Woori Financial Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Woori Financial Group's most recent dividend payout was on 21 April 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").
Woori Financial Group's shares were split on a 839:1000 basis on 22 May 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 839 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Woori Financial Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 19.2% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Woori Financial Group shares which in turn could have impacted Woori Financial Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Woori Financial Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.54 up to $28.5. 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 Woori Financial Group's is 0.5955. This would suggest that Woori Financial Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
