Valuing Telecom Plus stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Telecom Plus's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Telecom Plus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Telecom Plus shares trade at around 31x 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.
Telecom Plus's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.44. 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 Telecom Plus's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Telecom Plus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £66.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Telecom Plus's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 12127.66% of net profits
Recently Telecom Plus has paid out, on average, around 12127.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Telecom Plus shareholders could enjoy a 3.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Telecom Plus's case, that would currently equate to about 0.57p per share.
Telecom Plus'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 26 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Telecom Plus's shares have ranged in value from as little as 871.5392p up to 1523.0314p. 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 Telecom Plus's is 0.2408. This would suggest that Telecom Plus's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
