Valuing Vishay Precision Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vishay Precision Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vishay Precision 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 29x. In other words, Vishay Precision Group shares trade at around 29x 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.
Vishay Precision Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.63. 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 Precision 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.
Vishay Precision Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$34.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Vishay Precision Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 237,427 Vishay Precision Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Vishay Precision Group's "short interest". This figure is 20.5% up from 197,059 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vishay Precision Group shares can be evaluated.
Vishay Precision Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vishay Precision Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vishay Precision Group shares traded daily (recently around 45747.013487476). Vishay Precision Group's SIR currently stands at 5.19. In other words for every 100,000 Vishay Precision Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5190 shares are currently held short.
However Vishay Precision Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vishay Precision Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vishay Precision Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vishay Precision Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vishay Precision Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0228% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vishay Precision Group shares, roughly 23 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 Precision Group.

We're not expecting Vishay Precision Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Vishay Precision Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.56 up to $35.81. 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 Precision Group's is 1.4572. This would suggest that Vishay Precision Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
