Valuing Anglo American stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Anglo American's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Anglo American's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Anglo American shares trade at around 14x 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, Anglo American's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the other industrial metals & mining industry or those of similar companies.

Dividend payout ratio: 65.05% of net profits
Recently Anglo American has paid out, on average, around 65.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Anglo American shareholders could enjoy a 2.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Anglo American's case, that would currently equate to about 0.59p per share.
Anglo American's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Anglo American's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
Anglo American's shares were split on a 91:100 basis on 2 July 2007. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 91 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Anglo American shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.9% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Anglo American shares which in turn could have impacted Anglo American's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Anglo American's shares have ranged in value from as little as 1006.8777p up to 2564.5p. 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 (LSE average) beta is 1, while Anglo American's is 1.1313. This would suggest that Anglo American'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).
To put Anglo American's beta into context you can compare it against those of similar companies.
