Valuing Vodafone stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vodafone's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vodafone's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 369x. In other words, Vodafone shares trade at around 369x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Vodafone's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5941. 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's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Vodafone's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £12.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Vodafone's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Vodafone.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 17.19
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Vodafone's overall score of 17.19 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 16th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Vodafone is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 3.86/100
Vodafone's environmental score of 3.86 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Vodafone is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 8.77/100
Vodafone's social score of 8.77 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Vodafone is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 7.56/100
Vodafone's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Vodafone is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Vodafone scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Vodafone hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
Dividend payout ratio: 2368.42% of net profits
Recently Vodafone has paid out, on average, around 2368.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.9% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vodafone shareholders could enjoy a 6.9% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vodafone's case, that would currently equate to about 0.09p per share.
Vodafone'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.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Vodafone's shares were split on a 6:11 basis on 23 February 2014. So if you had owned 11 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 6 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Vodafone shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 83.3% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vodafone shares which in turn could have impacted Vodafone's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Vodafone's shares have ranged in value from as little as 100.8628p up to 142.6854p. 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 (LSE average) beta is 1, while Vodafone's is 0.9128. This would suggest that Vodafone's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
