Valuing Edinburgh Investment Trust stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Edinburgh Investment Trust's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Edinburgh Investment Trust's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, Edinburgh Investment Trust shares trade at around 33x recent earnings.
