Valuing Vodafone Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vodafone Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vodafone 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 16x. In other words, Vodafone Group shares trade at around 16x 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.
Vodafone Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.6057. 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 Vodafone 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.8 million Vodafone Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Vodafone Group's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% down from 4.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vodafone Group shares can be evaluated.
Vodafone Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vodafone Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vodafone Group shares traded daily (recently around 3.3 million). Vodafone Group's SIR currently stands at 1.44. In other words for every 100,000 Vodafone Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1440 shares are currently held short.
However Vodafone Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Vodafone Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Vodafone Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Vodafone Group's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Vodafone Group shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Vodafone Group 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 Vodafone Group.

Dividend payout ratio: 2114.01% of net profits
Recently Vodafone Group has paid out, on average, around 2114.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vodafone Group shareholders could enjoy a 5.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vodafone Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.176 per share.
Vodafone Group'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.
Vodafone Group's most recent dividend payout was on 5 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Vodafone Group's shares were split on a 4905:5000 basis on 24 February 2014. So if you had owned 5000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4905 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Vodafone Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1.9% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vodafone Group shares which in turn could have impacted Vodafone Group's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Vodafone Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.7759 up to $18.87. 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 Vodafone Group's is 0.8404. This would suggest that Vodafone Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
