Valuing Coats Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Coats Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Coats 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 22x. In other words, Coats Group shares trade at around 22x 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.
Coats Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £154.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Coats Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 20.99% of net profits
Recently Coats Group has paid out, on average, around 20.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.42% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Coats Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.42% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Coats Group's case, that would currently equate to about 0.01p per share.
While Coats Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Coats Group is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 April 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Coats Group's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 7 June 2010. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Coats Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Coats Group shares which in turn could have impacted Coats Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Coats Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 35.8901p up to 77.3286p. 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 Coats Group's is 1.2089. This would suggest that Coats 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).
