Valuing Yum China stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Yum China's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Yum China's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Yum China shares trade at around 31x 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.
Yum China's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.7965. 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 Yum China's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Yum China's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Yum China's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 18.3 million Yum China shares held short by investors – that's known as Yum China's "short interest". This figure is 17.1% up from 15.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Yum China shares can be evaluated.
Yum China's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Yum China shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Yum China shares traded daily (recently around 2.3 million). Yum China's SIR currently stands at 7.89. In other words for every 100,000 Yum China shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7890 shares are currently held short.
However Yum China's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Yum China shares, or, against the total number of tradable Yum China shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Yum China's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Yum China shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0454% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Yum China shares, roughly 45 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Yum China.

Dividend payout ratio: 16.9% of net profits
Recently Yum China has paid out, on average, around 16.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.96% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Yum China shareholders could enjoy a 0.96% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Yum China's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.
While Yum China's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Yum China is investing more in its future growth.
Yum China's most recent dividend payout was on 16 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Yum China's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.2532 up to $60.8478. 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 Yum China's is 0.8545. This would suggest that Yum China's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
