Valuing Vector Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vector Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vector Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Vector Group shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Vector Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.96. 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 Vector Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Vector Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $429.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Vector Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.7 million Vector Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Vector Group's "short interest". This figure is 14.9% up from 3.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vector Group shares can be evaluated.
Vector Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vector Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vector Group shares traded daily (recently around 463383.54271357). Vector Group's SIR currently stands at 7.96. In other words for every 100,000 Vector Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7960 shares are currently held short.
However Vector Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vector Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vector Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vector Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vector Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0304% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vector Group shares, roughly 30 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Vector Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 57.97% of net profits
Recently Vector Group has paid out, on average, around 57.97% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.48% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vector Group shareholders could enjoy a 6.48% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vector Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.
Vector Group'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.
Vector Group's most recent dividend payout was on 28 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Vector Group's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 15 September 2019. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Vector Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vector Group shares which in turn could have impacted Vector Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Vector Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.5006 up to $15.0753. 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 Vector Group's is 1.1785. This would suggest that Vector Group'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).
