Valuing RPS Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of RPS Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
RPS 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 12x. In other words, RPS Group shares trade at around 12x 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.
