Valuing OCBC stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of OCBC's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
OCBC's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, OCBC shares trade at around 11x recent earnings.
OCBC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8644. 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 OCBC'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 OCBC.
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: 31.8
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and OCBC's overall score of 31.8 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 61st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like OCBC 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: 1.07/100
OCBC's environmental score of 1.07 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that OCBC is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 14.32/100
OCBC's social score of 14.32 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that OCBC is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 15.4/100
OCBC's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that OCBC 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. OCBC scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that OCBC has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Dividend payout ratio: 1.64% of net profits
Recently OCBC has paid out, on average, around 1.64% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), OCBC shareholders could enjoy a 3.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In OCBC's case, that would currently equate to about S$0.409 per share.
While OCBC's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that OCBC is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
OCBC's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 August 2005. 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 OCBC shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for OCBC shares which in turn could have impacted OCBC's share price.
Over the last 12 months, OCBC's shares have ranged in value from as little as S$8.1228 up to S$12.3486. 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 (SG average) beta is 1, while OCBC's is 0.9111. This would suggest that OCBC's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
