Valuing Voya Financial stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Voya Financial's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Voya Financial's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Voya Financial shares trade at around 15x 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.
Voya Financial's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.19. 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 Voya Financial's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Voya Financial's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $593 million (£0.0 million).

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 14.2 million Voya Financial shares held short by investors – that's known as Voya Financial's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% down from 14.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Voya Financial shares can be evaluated.
Voya Financial's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Voya Financial shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Voya Financial shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Voya Financial's SIR currently stands at 10.32. In other words for every 100,000 Voya Financial shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10320 shares are currently held short.
However Voya Financial's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Voya Financial shares, or, against the total number of tradable Voya Financial shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Voya Financial's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Voya Financial shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1269% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Voya Financial shares, roughly 127 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Voya Financial.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Voya Financial shareholders could enjoy a 1.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Voya Financial's case, that would currently equate to about $0.6 per share.
While Voya Financial's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Voya Financial is investing more in its future growth.
