Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value.
NatWest's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 29x. In other words, NatWest shares trade at around 29x 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.
NatWest's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4624. A PEG ratio below 1 can be interpreted as meaning the shares are not overvalued given the current rate of growth.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into NatWest's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

We're not expecting NatWest to pay a dividend over the next 12 months. However, you can browse other dividend-paying shares in our guide.
NatWest's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 5 June 2012. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NatWest shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for NatWest shares which in turn could have impacted NatWest's share price.
Over the last 12 months, NatWest's shares have ranged in value from as little as 90.84p up to 193.4p. 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 NatWest's is 1.5956. This would suggest that NatWest's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
