Valuing VEON stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of VEON's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
VEON's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, VEON shares trade at around 6x 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.
VEON's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a VEON's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 10.2 million VEON shares held short by investors – that's known as VEON's "short interest". This figure is 20.3% down from 12.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting VEON shares can be evaluated.
VEON's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VEON shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VEON shares traded daily (recently around 3.6 million). VEON's SIR currently stands at 2.87. In other words for every 100,000 VEON shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2870 shares are currently held short.
However VEON's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VEON shares, or, against the total number of tradable VEON shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VEON's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VEON shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VEON 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 VEON.

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 VEON.
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: 56.57
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and VEON's overall score of 56.57 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 38th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like VEON 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: 52.67/100
VEON's environmental score of 52.67 puts it squarely in the 28th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that VEON is doing better than many of its peers in terms of its environmental impact, and so perhaps exposed to a slightly lower level of risk.
Social score: 55.46/100
VEON's social score of 55.46 puts it squarely in the 57th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that VEON is pretty average in terms of looking after its workforce and social impact.
Governance score: 65.15/100
VEON's governance score puts it squarely in the 34th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that VEON is impressive in terms of responsible leadership, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 4/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. VEON scored a 4 out of 5 for controversy – the second-lowest score possible, reflecting that VEON has a damaged public profile.
|Total ESG score||56.57|
|Total ESG percentile||37.66|
|Environmental score percentile||28.4|
|Social score percentile||57.38|
|Governance score percentile||33.54|
|Level of controversy||4|
Dividend payout ratio: 71.43% of net profits
Recently VEON has paid out, on average, around 71.43% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 20% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), VEON shareholders could enjoy a 20% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In VEON's case, that would currently equate to about $0.3 per share.
VEON'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.
VEON's most recent dividend payout was on 5 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 February 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
VEON's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 22 August 2007. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your VEON shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for VEON shares which in turn could have impacted VEON's share price.
Over the last 12 months, VEON's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.2 up to $2.5939. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while VEON's is 1.3433. This would suggest that VEON's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
