Valuing Activision Blizzard stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Activision Blizzard's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Activision Blizzard's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, Activision Blizzard shares trade at around 35x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Activision Blizzard's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.7987. 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 Activision Blizzard's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Activision Blizzard's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$2.3 billion (£1.9 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Activision Blizzard's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.
Over the last 12 months, Activision Blizzard's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$70.6379 up to US$94.57. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Activision Blizzard's is 0.37. This would suggest that Activision Blizzard's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

Dividend payout ratio: 27.89% of net profits
Recently Activision Blizzard has paid out, on average, around 27.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.05% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Activision Blizzard shareholders could enjoy a 1.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Activision Blizzard's case, that would currently equate to about $1.98 per share.
While Activision Blizzard's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Activision Blizzard may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Activision Blizzard's most recent dividend payout was on 17 August 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 August 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
