Valuing Schroders stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Schroders's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Schroders's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Schroders shares trade at around 21x 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.
Schroders's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.9843. 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 Schroders's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Schroders's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £697.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Schroders's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Schroders.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 27.67
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Schroders's overall score of 27.67 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 36th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Schroders is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 10.62/100
Schroders's environmental score of 10.62 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Schroders is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 15.68/100
Schroders's social score of 15.68 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Schroders is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 14.37/100
Schroders's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Schroders is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, Schroders scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Schroders has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||27.67|
|Total ESG percentile||35.6|
|Environmental score percentile||9|
|Social score percentile||9|
|Governance score percentile||9|
|Level of controversy||2|
Dividend payout ratio: 6909.09% of net profits
Recently Schroders has paid out, on average, around 6909.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Schroders shareholders could enjoy a 3.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Schroders's case, that would currently equate to about 1.14p per share.
Schroders'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 20 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Schroders's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 5 May 1998. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Schroders shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Schroders shares which in turn could have impacted Schroders's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Schroders's shares have ranged in value from as little as 1637.7639p up to 3464p. 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 Schroders's is 1.2315. This would suggest that Schroders's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
