Valuing Aurizon stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Aurizon's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Aurizon's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Aurizon shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Aurizon's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.65. 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 Aurizon's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Aurizon's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.5 billion (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Aurizon's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$3 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||29.88%|
|Gross profit TTM||$1.5 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||5.93%|
|Return on equity TTM||14.2%|
|Market capitalisation||$7 billion|

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 Aurizon.
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: 26.57
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Aurizon's overall score of 26.57 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 35th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Aurizon 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: 15.33/100
Aurizon's environmental score of 15.33 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Aurizon is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 15.36/100
Aurizon's social score of 15.36 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Aurizon is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Dividend payout ratio: 77.81% of net profits
Recently Aurizon has paid out, on average, around 77.81% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Aurizon shareholders could enjoy a 6.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Aurizon's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.249 per share.
Aurizon'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 28 February 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Aurizon's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.2094 up to $4.245. 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 (AU average) beta is 1, while Aurizon's is 0.3605. This would suggest that Aurizon's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
