Valuing Goodwin stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Goodwin's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Goodwin's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, Goodwin shares trade at around 35x 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.
Goodwin's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £16.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Goodwin's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 9180.9% of net profits
Recently Goodwin has paid out, on average, around 9180.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Goodwin shareholders could enjoy a 2.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Goodwin's case, that would currently equate to about 0.82p per share.
Goodwin'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 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Goodwin's shares have ranged in value from as little as 1684.8448p up to 3650p. 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 Goodwin's is 1.3907. This would suggest that Goodwin's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
