adidas's P/E ratio
adidas's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 59x. In other words, adidas shares trade at around 59x recent earnings.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into adidas's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

adidas's environmental, social and governance track record

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

adidas share dividends
We're not expecting adidas to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have adidas's shares ever split?
adidas's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 5 June 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your adidas shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for adidas shares which in turn could have impacted adidas's share price.
adidas share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, adidas's shares have ranged in value from as little as EUR€219.5 up to EUR€306. 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 (F average) beta is 1, while adidas's is 0.8441. This would suggest that adidas's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
