Valuing Royal Dutch Shell stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Royal Dutch Shell's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Royal Dutch Shell's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 43x. In other words, Royal Dutch Shell shares trade at around 43x 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.
Royal Dutch Shell's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$30.7 billion (£24.4 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Royal Dutch Shell's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.
Over the last 12 months, Royal Dutch Shell's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$0 up to US$0. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Royal Dutch Shell's is 1.0449. This would suggest that Royal Dutch Shell's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).

|Gross profit TTM||US$39.4 billion|

Dividend payout ratio: 36.03% of net profits
Recently Royal Dutch Shell has paid out, on average, around 36.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Royal Dutch Shell shareholders could enjoy a 3.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Royal Dutch Shell's case, that would currently equate to about $0.82 per share.
While Royal Dutch Shell's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Royal Dutch Shell may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Royal Dutch Shell's most recent dividend payout was on 20 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
