Is BHP Group stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing BHP Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BHP Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BHP Group's P/E ratio
BHP Group'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, BHP Group 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.
BHP Group's EBITDA
BHP Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $32.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a BHP Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

BHP Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 142.09% of net profits
Recently BHP Group has paid out, on average, around 142.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BHP Group shareholders could enjoy a 9.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BHP Group's case, that would currently equate to about $2.65 per share.
BHP Group'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.
BHP Group's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have BHP Group's shares ever split?
BHP Group's shares were split on a 1121:1000 basis on 2 June 2022. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1121 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your BHP Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 10.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for BHP Group shares which in turn could have impacted BHP Group's share price.
BHP Group share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, BHP Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $43.0694 up to $69.4849. 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 BHP Group's is 0.8039. This would suggest that BHP Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
