Valuing Carrs Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Carrs Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Carrs 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 14x. In other words, Carrs Group 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.
Carrs Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £17.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Carrs Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 46.57% of net profits
Recently Carrs Group has paid out, on average, around 46.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Carrs Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Carrs Group's case, that would currently equate to about 0.05p per share.
While Carrs Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Carrs Group 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 3 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Carrs Group's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 14 January 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Carrs Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Carrs Group shares which in turn could have impacted Carrs Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Carrs Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 83.8281p up to 158.9266p. 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 Carrs Group's is 1.0537. This would suggest that Carrs Group'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).
