Valuing Sony stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sony's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sony's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Sony shares trade at around 14x recent earnings.
Sony's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9414. 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 Sony's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Sony's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$11.7 billion (£9.6 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Sony's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 3% of net profits
Recently Sony has paid out, on average, around 3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sony shareholders could enjoy a 0.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sony's case, that would currently equate to about $0.455 per share.
While Sony's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Sony is investing more in its future growth.
Sony's most recent dividend payout was on 8 December 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Sony's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 May 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sony shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sony shares which in turn could have impacted Sony's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Sony'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 (N/A average) beta is 1, while Sony's is 0.8056. This would suggest that Sony's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
