Valuing Plus500 stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Plus500's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Plus500's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Plus500 shares trade at around 4x 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.

Dividend payout ratio: 16.76% of net profits
Recently Plus500 has paid out, on average, around 16.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Plus500 shareholders could enjoy a 6.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Plus500's case, that would currently equate to about 1.02p per share.
While Plus500's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Plus500 is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Plus500's shares have ranged in value from as little as 619.5978p up to 1658.5p. 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 Plus500's is -0.1618. This would suggest that Plus500's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Plus500 has bucked the trend.
