Valuing Volkswagen stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Volkswagen's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Volkswagen's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Volkswagen shares trade at around 19x recent earnings.

Dividend payout ratio: 174.61% of net profits
Recently Volkswagen has paid out, on average, around 174.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Volkswagen shareholders could enjoy a 3.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Volkswagen's case, that would currently equate to about $0.57 per share.
Volkswagen'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.
Volkswagen's most recent dividend payout was on 19 October 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Volkswagen's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.2558 up to $19.933. 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 (PINK average) beta is 1, while Volkswagen's is 1.6475. This would suggest that Volkswagen's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
