Valuing Countrywide stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Countrywide's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Countrywide's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 0x. In other words, Countrywide shares trade at around 0x 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.
Countrywide's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £24.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Countrywide's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Countrywide's shares were split on a 1:50 basis on 30 December 2019. So if you had owned 50 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Countrywide shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Countrywide shares which in turn could have impacted Countrywide's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Countrywide's shares have ranged in value from as little as 38.6001p up to 361.5084p. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
