Valuing Ralph Lauren stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ralph Lauren's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ralph Lauren's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, Ralph Lauren shares trade at around 38x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Ralph Lauren's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.3443. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Ralph Lauren's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 3.0 million Ralph Lauren shares held short by investors – that's known as Ralph Lauren's "short interest". This figure is 42.4% down from 5.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ralph Lauren shares can be evaluated.
Ralph Lauren's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ralph Lauren shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ralph Lauren shares traded daily (recently around 1.5 million). Ralph Lauren's SIR currently stands at 2.08. In other words for every 100,000 Ralph Lauren shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2080 shares are currently held short.
However Ralph Lauren's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ralph Lauren shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ralph Lauren shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ralph Lauren's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ralph Lauren shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0713% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ralph Lauren shares, roughly 71 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Ralph Lauren.

Dividend payout ratio: 38.19% of net profits
Recently Ralph Lauren has paid out, on average, around 38.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ralph Lauren shareholders could enjoy a 3.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ralph Lauren's case, that would currently equate to about $2.75 per share.
While Ralph Lauren's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Ralph Lauren may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Ralph Lauren's most recent dividend payout was on 10 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Ralph Lauren's shares have ranged in value from as little as $59.82 up to $123.2331. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ralph Lauren's is 1.4674. This would suggest that Ralph Lauren's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
