Valuing Best & Less Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Best & Less Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Best & Less Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Best & Less Group shares trade at around 8x 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.
Best & Less Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $52.2 million (£0.0 million).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Best & Less Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 88.89% of net profits
Recently Best & Less Group has paid out, on average, around 88.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 10.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Best & Less Group shareholders could enjoy a 10.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Best & Less Group's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.2 per share.
Best & Less Group'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 13 April 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
