Valuing ASML Holding stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ASML Holding's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ASML Holding's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 82x. In other words, ASML Holding shares trade at around 82x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
ASML Holding's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.3383. 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 ASML Holding's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Dividend payout ratio: 22.08% of net profits
Recently ASML Holding has paid out, on average, around 22.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ASML Holding shareholders could enjoy a 0.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ASML Holding's case, that would currently equate to about $2.85 per share.
While ASML Holding's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ASML Holding is investing more in its future growth.
ASML Holding's most recent dividend payout was on 13 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
ASML Holding's shares were split on a 77:100 basis on 29 November 2012. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 77 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ASML Holding shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 29.9% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for ASML Holding shares which in turn could have impacted ASML Holding's share price.
Over the last 12 months, ASML Holding's shares have ranged in value from as little as $189.5555 up to $573.8. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ASML Holding's is 0.883. This would suggest that ASML Holding's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
