Valuing Clipper Logistics stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Clipper Logistics's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Clipper Logistics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, Clipper Logistics shares trade at around 30x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Clipper Logistics's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £38.4 million.

Dividend payout ratio: 5368.42% of net profits
Recently Clipper Logistics has paid out, on average, around 5368.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Clipper Logistics shareholders could enjoy a 1.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Clipper Logistics's case, that would currently equate to about 0.1p per share.
Clipper Logistics'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 10 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Clipper Logistics's shares have ranged in value from as little as 127.2687p up to 661p. 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 Clipper Logistics's is 1.7099. This would suggest that Clipper Logistics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
