Valuing Coca-Cola stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Coca-Cola's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Coca-Cola's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Coca-Cola shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
Coca-Cola's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.6006. 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 Coca-Cola's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Coca-Cola's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $13.5 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Coca-Cola's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Coca-Cola.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 21.08
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Coca-Cola's overall score of 21.08 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 37th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Coca-Cola is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 8.2/100
Social score: 10.31/100
Governance score: 1.57/100
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Coca-Cola scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Coca-Cola hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
Dividend payout ratio: 71.77% of net profits
Recently Coca-Cola has paid out, on average, around 71.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Coca-Cola shareholders could enjoy a 3.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Coca-Cola's case, that would currently equate to about $1.76 per share.
Coca-Cola'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.
Coca-Cola's most recent dividend payout was on 3 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Coca-Cola's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 13 August 2012. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Coca-Cola shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Coca-Cola shares which in turn could have impacted Coca-Cola's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Coca-Cola's shares have ranged in value from as little as $53.2313 up to $65.268. 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 Coca-Cola's is 0.5395. This would suggest that Coca-Cola's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
