Valuing Admiral Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Admiral Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Admiral Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Admiral Group shares trade at around 18x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
However, Admiral Group's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the insurance-property & casualty industry or those of similar companies.
Admiral Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7122. 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 Admiral Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
However, it's sensible to consider Admiral Group's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

In Admiral Group's case, that would currently equate to about 1.11p per share.
