Valuing Luceco stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Luceco's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Luceco's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 27x. In other words, Luceco shares trade at around 27x 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.
Luceco's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £27.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Luceco's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 6% of net profits
Recently Luceco has paid out, on average, around 6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Luceco shareholders could enjoy a 1.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Luceco's case, that would currently equate to about 0.01p per share.
While Luceco's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Luceco is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Luceco's shares have ranged in value from as little as 38.7241p up to 299.5p. 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 Luceco's is 1.2373. This would suggest that Luceco'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).
