Valuing Sherwin-Williams stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sherwin-Williams's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sherwin-Williams's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Sherwin-Williams shares trade at around 32x 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.
Sherwin-Williams's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1963. 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 Sherwin-Williams's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

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 Sherwin-Williams.
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: 30.56
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Sherwin-Williams's overall score of 30.56 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 58th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Sherwin-Williams 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: 13.76/100
Sherwin-Williams's environmental score of 13.76 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Sherwin-Williams is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 12.06/100
Sherwin-Williams's social score of 12.06 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Sherwin-Williams is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 7.25/100
Sherwin-Williams's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Sherwin-Williams is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Sherwin-Williams scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Sherwin-Williams has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Dividend payout ratio: 29.91% of net profits
Recently Sherwin-Williams has paid out, on average, around 29.91% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sherwin-Williams shareholders could enjoy a 1.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sherwin-Williams's case, that would currently equate to about $2.25 per share.
While Sherwin-Williams's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Sherwin-Williams may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Sherwin-Williams's most recent dividend payout was on 3 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Sherwin-Williams's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 1 April 2021. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sherwin-Williams shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sherwin-Williams shares which in turn could have impacted Sherwin-Williams's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Sherwin-Williams's shares have ranged in value from as little as $214.22 up to $352.513. 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 Sherwin-Williams's is 1.0023. This would suggest that Sherwin-Williams's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
