Valuing Viper Energy Partners stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Viper Energy Partners's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Viper Energy Partners'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, Viper Energy Partners 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.
Viper Energy Partners's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7623. 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 Viper Energy Partners's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Viper Energy Partners's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$189.4 million.

There are currently 1.5 million Viper Energy Partners shares held short by investors – that's known as Viper Energy Partners's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 1.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Viper Energy Partners shares can be evaluated.
Viper Energy Partners's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Viper Energy Partners shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Viper Energy Partners shares traded daily (recently around 636688.42975207). Viper Energy Partners's SIR currently stands at 2.42. In other words for every 100,000 Viper Energy Partners shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2420 shares are currently held short.
However Viper Energy Partners's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Viper Energy Partners shares, or, against the total number of tradable Viper Energy Partners shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Viper Energy Partners's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Viper Energy Partners shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0309% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Viper Energy Partners shares, roughly 31 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 Viper Energy Partners.

Recently Viper Energy Partners has paid out, on average, around 345.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Viper Energy Partners shareholders could enjoy a 2.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Viper Energy Partners's case, that would currently equate to about $0.4 per share.
Viper Energy Partners'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.
Viper Energy Partners's most recent dividend payout was on 19 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Viper Energy Partners's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.8513 up to $23.202. 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 Viper Energy Partners's is 2.6402. This would suggest that Viper Energy Partners's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
