Valuing Vale S-A stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vale S-A's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vale S-A's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 152x. In other words, Vale S-A shares trade at around 152x 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.
Vale S-A's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$9.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Vale S-A's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 78.6 million Vale S-A shares held short by investors – that's known as Vale S-A's "short interest". This figure is 16.3% down from 93.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vale S-A shares can be evaluated.
Vale S-A's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vale S-A shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vale S-A shares traded daily (recently around 26.3 million). Vale S-A's SIR currently stands at 2.99. In other words for every 100,000 Vale S-A shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2990 shares are currently held short.
However Vale S-A's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vale S-A shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vale S-A shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vale S-A's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vale S-A shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vale S-A shares, roughly 0 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 Vale S-A.

Dividend payout ratio: 73.08% of net profits
Recently Vale S-A has paid out, on average, around 73.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vale S-A shareholders could enjoy a 3.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vale S-A's case, that would currently equate to about $0.273 per share.
Vale S-A'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.
Vale S-A's most recent dividend payout was on 7 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Vale S-A's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 13 September 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Vale S-A shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vale S-A shares which in turn could have impacted Vale S-A's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Vale S-A's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.2412 up to $19. 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 Vale S-A's is 0.7931. This would suggest that Vale S-A's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
