Valuing VSE Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of VSE Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
VSE Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 314x. In other words, VSE Corporation shares trade at around 314x 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.
VSE Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$82.6 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a VSE Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 120,610 VSE Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as VSE Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.5% up from 112,167 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting VSE Corporation shares can be evaluated.
VSE Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of VSE Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of VSE Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 22886.14800759). VSE Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.27. In other words for every 100,000 VSE Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5270 shares are currently held short.
However VSE Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of VSE Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable VSE Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case VSE Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 VSE Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0168% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable VSE Corporation shares, roughly 17 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 VSE Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 13.79% of net profits
Recently VSE Corporation has paid out, on average, around 13.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.01% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), VSE Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.01% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In VSE Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.
While VSE Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that VSE Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
VSE Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 18 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
VSE Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 August 2016. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your VSE Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for VSE Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted VSE Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, VSE Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.6845 up to $40.5974. 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 VSE Corporation's is 1.4177. This would suggest that VSE Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
