Valuing N Brown Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of N Brown Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
N Brown 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 6x. In other words, N Brown Group shares trade at around 6x 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.
N Brown Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £81.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a N Brown Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 2830% of net profits
Recently N Brown Group has paid out, on average, around 2830% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 22.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), N Brown Group shareholders could enjoy a 22.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In N Brown Group's case, that would currently equate to about 0.07p per share.
N Brown 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 2 January 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
N Brown Group's shares were split on a 19:21 basis on 22 February 2007. So if you had owned 21 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 19 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your N Brown Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 10.5% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for N Brown Group shares which in turn could have impacted N Brown Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, N Brown Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 10.02p up to 163.9p. 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 N Brown Group's is 2.6595. This would suggest that N Brown Group's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
