Valuing Vishay Intertechnology stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vishay Intertechnology's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vishay Intertechnology's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Vishay Intertechnology shares trade at around 26x 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.
Vishay Intertechnology's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.75. 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 Vishay Intertechnology's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Vishay Intertechnology's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$347.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Vishay Intertechnology's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.8 million Vishay Intertechnology shares held short by investors – that's known as Vishay Intertechnology's "short interest". This figure is 18.8% up from 4.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vishay Intertechnology shares can be evaluated.
Vishay Intertechnology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vishay Intertechnology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vishay Intertechnology shares traded daily (recently around 937666.7961165). Vishay Intertechnology's SIR currently stands at 5.15. In other words for every 100,000 Vishay Intertechnology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5150 shares are currently held short.
However Vishay Intertechnology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vishay Intertechnology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vishay Intertechnology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vishay Intertechnology's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vishay Intertechnology shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0416% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vishay Intertechnology shares, roughly 42 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 Vishay Intertechnology.

Dividend payout ratio: 49.35% of net profits
Recently Vishay Intertechnology has paid out, on average, around 49.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.02% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vishay Intertechnology shareholders could enjoy a 2.02% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vishay Intertechnology's case, that would currently equate to about $0.38 per share.
While Vishay Intertechnology's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Vishay Intertechnology may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Vishay Intertechnology's most recent dividend payout was on 24 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Vishay Intertechnology's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 12 June 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Vishay Intertechnology shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vishay Intertechnology shares which in turn could have impacted Vishay Intertechnology's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Vishay Intertechnology's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.0985 up to $22.845. 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 Vishay Intertechnology's is 1.3625. This would suggest that Vishay Intertechnology's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
