Is Chevron stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Chevron's P/E ratio

Chevron's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Chevron shares trade at around 10x 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.

Chevron's PEG ratio

Chevron's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.7753. 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 Chevron's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Chevron's EBITDA

Chevron's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $52.9 billion.

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

Chevron's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Chevron.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Chevron's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 43.79

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Chevron's overall score of 43.79 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 91st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Chevron is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Chevron's environmental score

Environmental score: 24.34/100

Chevron's environmental score of 24.34 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Chevron is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Chevron's social score

Social score: 15.98/100

Chevron's social score of 15.98 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Chevron is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Chevron's governance score

Governance score: 13.98/100

Chevron's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Chevron is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Chevron's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Chevron scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Chevron hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Chevron Corp was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 43.79
Total ESG percentile 91.1
Environmental score 24.34
Environmental score percentile 8
Social score 15.98

Governance score 13.98

Level of controversy 3

Chevron share dividends

33%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.83% of net profits

Recently Chevron has paid out, on average, around 32.83% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chevron shareholders could enjoy a 3.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chevron's case, that would currently equate to about $5.6 per share.

While Chevron's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Chevron may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Chevron's most recent dividend payout was on 12 December 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Chevron's shares ever split?

Chevron's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 13 September 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 Chevron shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chevron shares which in turn could have impacted Chevron's share price.

Chevron share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Chevron's shares have ranged in value from as little as $106.88 up to $188.224. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CVX.US volatility(beta: 1.19)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Chevron's is 1.1893. This would suggest that Chevron's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
