Valuing China Mobile stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of China Mobile's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
China Mobile's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, China Mobile shares trade at around 6x 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.
China Mobile's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5135. 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 China Mobile'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: 943.18% of net profits
Recently China Mobile has paid out, on average, around 943.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), China Mobile shareholders could enjoy a 7.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In China Mobile's case, that would currently equate to about $1.97 per share.
China Mobile's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
China Mobile's most recent dividend payout was on 9 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
China Mobile's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 5 July 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your China Mobile shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for China Mobile shares which in turn could have impacted China Mobile's share price.
Over the last 12 months, China Mobile's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0 up to $0. 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 China Mobile's is 0.502. This would suggest that China Mobile's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
