Valuing Mitie Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Mitie Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Mitie 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 11x. In other words, Mitie Group shares trade at around 11x 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.
However, Mitie Group's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the specialty business services industry or those of similar companies.

Dividend payout ratio: 17.5% of net profits
Recently Mitie Group has paid out, on average, around 17.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Mitie Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Mitie Group's case, that would currently equate to about 0.04p per share.
While Mitie Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Mitie Group is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 December 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").
Mitie Group's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
Mitie Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 April 2001. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Mitie Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Mitie Group shares which in turn could have impacted Mitie Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Mitie Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 26.6p up to 75.767p. 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 Mitie Group's is 1.3887. This would suggest that Mitie Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
