Valuing Investec Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Investec Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Investec 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 2x. In other words, Investec Group shares trade at around 2x 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.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Investec Group.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 27.93
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Investec Group's overall score of 27.93 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 29th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Investec Group is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 6.89/100
Investec Group's environmental score of 6.89 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Investec Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 16.92/100
Investec Group's social score of 16.92 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Investec Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 17.61/100
Investec Group's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Investec Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, Investec Group scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Investec Group has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Dividend payout ratio: 2291.67% of net profits
Recently Investec Group has paid out, on average, around 2291.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Investec Group shareholders could enjoy a 8.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Investec Group's case, that would currently equate to about 0.17p per share.
Investec Group'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").
Investec Group's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 4 September 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Investec Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Investec Group shares which in turn could have impacted Investec Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Investec Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 119.1569p up to 442.5969p. 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 Investec Group's is 1.1123. This would suggest that Investec 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).
