Is Baker Hughes stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Baker Hughes stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Baker Hughes's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Baker Hughes's P/E ratio

Baker Hughes's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 75x. In other words, Baker Hughes shares trade at around 75x 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.

Baker Hughes's PEG ratio

Baker Hughes's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3169. 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 Baker Hughes's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Baker Hughes's EBITDA

Baker Hughes's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.3 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Baker Hughes's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Baker Hughes share dividends

63%

Dividend payout ratio: 63.48% of net profits

Recently Baker Hughes has paid out, on average, around 63.48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Baker Hughes shareholders could enjoy a 2.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Baker Hughes's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

Baker Hughes'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.

Baker Hughes's most recent dividend payout was on 17 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Baker Hughes share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Baker Hughes's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.2779 up to $39.027. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BKR.US volatility(beta: 1.49)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Baker Hughes's is 1.4925. This would suggest that Baker Hughes's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
