Is APA Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

APA Corporation's P/E ratio
APA 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 21x. In other words, APA Corporation shares trade at around 21x 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.
APA Corporation's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into APA Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

APA Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 9.35% of net profits
Recently APA Corporation has paid out, on average, around 9.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), APA Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In APA Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.138 per share.
While APA Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that APA Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Have APA Corporation's shares ever split?
APA Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 January 2004. 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 APA Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for APA Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted APA Corporation's share price.
APA Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, APA Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.9576 up to $33.37. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
