Valuing The Rank Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of The Rank Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
The Rank 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 57x. In other words, The Rank Group shares trade at around 57x 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.
The Rank Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.65. 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 The Rank Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
The Rank Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £47.6 million.

Dividend payout ratio: 14000% of net profits
Recently The Rank Group has paid out, on average, around 14000% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.97% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), The Rank Group shareholders could enjoy a 4.97% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In The Rank Group's case, that would currently equate to about 0.08p per share.
The Rank 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 13 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
The Rank Group's shares were split on a 18:25 basis on 26 March 2007. So if you had owned 25 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 18 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your The Rank Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 38.9% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for The Rank Group shares which in turn could have impacted The Rank Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, The Rank Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as 78.2p up to 328.7899p. 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 The Rank Group's is 2.0775. This would suggest that The Rank Group's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
