Valuing Paramount Global stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Paramount Global's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Paramount Global's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Paramount Global shares trade at around 4x 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.
Paramount Global's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7219. 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 Paramount Global's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

While Paramount Global's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Paramount Global may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
