Is Chevron Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Chevron Corporation's P/E ratio

Chevron 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 58x. In other words, Chevron Corporation shares trade at around 58x 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.

Chevron Corporation's PEG ratio

Chevron Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5308. 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 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.

Chevron Corporation's EBITDA

Chevron Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $21.9 billion.

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

Shorting Chevron Corporation shares

There are currently 18.8 million Chevron Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Chevron Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 18.4% up from 15.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Chevron Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Chevron Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Chevron Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Chevron Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Chevron Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 12.0 million). Chevron Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.57. In other words for every 100,000 Chevron Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1570 shares are currently held short.

However Chevron Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Chevron Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Chevron Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Chevron Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Chevron Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0098% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Chevron Corporation shares, roughly 10 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Chevron Corporation.

Chevron Corporation'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 Corporation.

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

Chevron Corporation'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 Corporation's overall score of 43.79 (as at 12/31/2018) 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 Corporation 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 Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 24.34/100

Chevron Corporation'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 Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Chevron Corporation's social score

Social score: 15.98/100

Chevron Corporation'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 Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Chevron Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 13.98/100

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

Chevron Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

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

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Total ESG score 43.79
Total ESG percentile 91.1

Chevron Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.94% of net profits

Recently Chevron Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chevron Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 4.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chevron Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $5.21 per share.

While Chevron Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Chevron Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Chevron Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Chevron Corporation's shares ever split?

Chevron Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 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 Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chevron Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Chevron Corporation's share price.

Chevron Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Chevron Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $61.7222 up to $110.2557. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CVX.US volatility(beta: 1.24)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 Corporation's is 1.2386. This would suggest that Chevron Corporation'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).
