Valuing Ventas stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ventas's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ventas's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 141x. In other words, Ventas shares trade at around 141x 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.
Ventas's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 134.3684. 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 Ventas's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Ventas's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Ventas's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 12.6 million Ventas shares held short by investors – that's known as Ventas's "short interest". This figure is 15.7% up from 10.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ventas shares can be evaluated.
Ventas's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ventas shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ventas shares traded daily (recently around 2.0 million). Ventas's SIR currently stands at 6.4. In other words for every 100,000 Ventas shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6400 shares are currently held short.
However Ventas's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ventas shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ventas shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ventas's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ventas shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0334% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ventas shares, roughly 33 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 Ventas.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Ventas.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 21.31
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Ventas's overall score of 21.31 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 13rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Ventas is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 8.8/100
Ventas's environmental score of 8.8 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Ventas is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 9.95/100
Ventas's social score of 9.95 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Ventas is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Dividend payout ratio: 59.41% of net profits
Recently Ventas has paid out, on average, around 59.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ventas shareholders could enjoy a 3.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ventas's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.
Ventas'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.
Ventas's most recent dividend payout was on 13 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Ventas's shares were split on a 8757:10000 basis on 17 August 2015. So if you had owned 10000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 8757 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ventas shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 14.2% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ventas shares which in turn could have impacted Ventas's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Ventas's shares have ranged in value from as little as $36.8843 up to $61.09. 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 Ventas's is 1.292. This would suggest that Ventas's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
