Valuing Vail Resorts stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vail Resorts's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vail Resorts's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 97x. In other words, Vail Resorts shares trade at around 97x 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.
Vail Resorts's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2. 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 Vail Resorts's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Vail Resorts's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$509.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Vail Resorts's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.4 million Vail Resorts shares held short by investors – that's known as Vail Resorts's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% up from 2.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vail Resorts shares can be evaluated.
Vail Resorts's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vail Resorts shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vail Resorts shares traded daily (recently around 529601.33037694). Vail Resorts's SIR currently stands at 4.51. In other words for every 100,000 Vail Resorts shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4510 shares are currently held short.
However Vail Resorts's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vail Resorts shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vail Resorts shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vail Resorts's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vail Resorts shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0832% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vail Resorts shares, roughly 83 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Vail Resorts.

Dividend payout ratio: 3520% of net profits
Recently Vail Resorts has paid out, on average, around 3520% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.27% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vail Resorts shareholders could enjoy a 4.27% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vail Resorts's case, that would currently equate to about $7.04 per share.
Vail Resorts'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.
Vail Resorts's most recent dividend payout was on 9 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Vail Resorts's shares were split on 6 November 2008.
Over the last 12 months, Vail Resorts's shares have ranged in value from as little as $125 up to $255.37. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Vail Resorts's is 1.2377. This would suggest that Vail Resorts'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).
