Valuing Berkshire Hathaway stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Berkshire Hathaway's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Berkshire Hathaway's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Berkshire Hathaway shares trade at around 6x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Berkshire Hathaway's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $53.7 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Berkshire Hathaway's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

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 Berkshire Hathaway.
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: 22.08
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Berkshire Hathaway's overall score of 22.08 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 19th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Berkshire Hathaway 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: 6.6/100
Berkshire Hathaway's environmental score of 6.6 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Berkshire Hathaway is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 10.75/100
Berkshire Hathaway's social score of 10.75 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Berkshire Hathaway is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 20.22/100
Berkshire Hathaway's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Berkshire Hathaway is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 1/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Berkshire Hathaway scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that Berkshire Hathaway has managed to keep its nose clean.
We're not expecting Berkshire Hathaway to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Berkshire Hathaway's shares were split on a 1:50 basis on 20 January 2010. So if you had owned 50 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Berkshire Hathaway shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Berkshire Hathaway shares which in turn could have impacted Berkshire Hathaway's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Berkshire Hathaway's shares have ranged in value from as little as $221.26 up to $272.97. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Berkshire Hathaway's is 0.8053. This would suggest that Berkshire Hathaway's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
