Valuing Vedanta stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vedanta's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vedanta's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Vedanta shares trade at around 8x 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 3.9 million Vedanta shares held short by investors – that's known as Vedanta's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% up from 3.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Vedanta shares can be evaluated.
Vedanta's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Vedanta shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Vedanta shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Vedanta's SIR currently stands at 3.57. In other words for every 100,000 Vedanta shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3570 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 Vedanta.

Vedanta's shares were split on a 599:1000 basis on 9 September 2013. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 599 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Vedanta shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.9% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vedanta shares which in turn could have impacted Vedanta's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Vedanta's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.9407 up to $10.28. 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 Vedanta's is 1.8757. This would suggest that Vedanta's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
