Valuing Savills stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Savills's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Savills's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Savills shares trade at around 20x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71).
Savills's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £148 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Savills's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 5410% of net profits
Recently Savills has paid out, on average, around 5410% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Savills shareholders could enjoy a 2.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Savills's case, that would currently equate to about 0.17p per share.
Savills'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 9 April 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Savills's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 May 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Savills shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Savills shares which in turn could have impacted Savills's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Savills's shares have ranged in value from as little as 598.7708p up to 1224.583p. 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 Savills's is 1.3525. This would suggest that Savills's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
