Valuing Avon Rubber stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Avon Rubber's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Avon Rubber's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Avon Rubber shares trade at around 7x 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, Avon Rubber's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the aerospace & defense industry or those of similar companies.
Avon Rubber's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £25.1 million.

Dividend payout ratio: 45820% of net profits
Recently Avon Rubber has paid out, on average, around 45820% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Avon Rubber shareholders could enjoy a 0.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Avon Rubber's case, that would currently equate to about 0.27p per share.
Avon Rubber'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 11 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Avon Rubber's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
