Valuing SPH stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of SPH's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
SPH's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 49x. In other words, SPH shares trade at around 49x recent earnings.
SPH's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.96. 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 SPH's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
SPH's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is S$284.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a SPH's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 33.33% of net profits
Recently SPH has paid out, on average, around 33.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), SPH shareholders could enjoy a 3.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In SPH's case, that would currently equate to about S$0.06 per share.
While SPH's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that SPH may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 21 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
SPH's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 7 June 2004. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SPH shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SPH shares which in turn could have impacted SPH's share price.
Over the last 12 months, SPH's shares have ranged in value from as little as S$0.9655 up to S$2.02. 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 SPH's is 0.6213. This would suggest that SPH's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
