Valuing Yamana Gold stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Yamana Gold's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Yamana Gold's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Yamana Gold shares trade at around 21x 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.
Yamana Gold's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.99. 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 Yamana Gold's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Yamana Gold's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$625.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Yamana Gold's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 9.1 million Yamana Gold shares held short by investors – that's known as Yamana Gold's "short interest". This figure is 31.2% down from 13.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Yamana Gold shares can be evaluated.
Yamana Gold's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Yamana Gold shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Yamana Gold shares traded daily (recently around 15.4 million). Yamana Gold's SIR currently stands at 0.59. In other words for every 100,000 Yamana Gold shares traded daily on the market, roughly 590 shares are currently held short.
However Yamana Gold's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Yamana Gold shares, or, against the total number of tradable Yamana Gold shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Yamana Gold's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Yamana Gold shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Yamana Gold 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 Yamana Gold.

Dividend payout ratio: 30.91% of net profits
Recently Yamana Gold has paid out, on average, around 30.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Yamana Gold shareholders could enjoy a 1.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Yamana Gold's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.
While Yamana Gold's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Yamana Gold may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Yamana Gold's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Yamana Gold's shares were split on a 1:27 basis on 21 August 2003. So if you had owned 27 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Yamana Gold shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Yamana Gold shares which in turn could have impacted Yamana Gold's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Yamana Gold's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.23 up to $7.02. 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 Yamana Gold's is 2.0545. This would suggest that Yamana Gold's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
