Valuing Yancoal Australia stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Yancoal Australia 's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Yancoal Australia 's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Yancoal Australia shares trade at around 9x 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.
Yancoal Australia 's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.1 billion (£1.2 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Yancoal Australia 's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Dividend payout ratio: 34.58% of net profits
Recently Yancoal Australia has paid out, on average, around 34.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Yancoal Australia shareholders could enjoy a 9.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Yancoal Australia 's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.5 per share.
While Yancoal Australia 's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Yancoal Australia may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Yancoal Australia 's shares were split on a 1:35 basis on 28 September 2018. So if you had owned 35 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Yancoal Australia shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Yancoal Australia shares which in turn could have impacted Yancoal Australia 's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Yancoal Australia 's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.8495 up to $6.23. 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 Yancoal Australia 's is 0.423. This would suggest that Yancoal Australia 's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
