Valuing Continental Resources stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Continental Resources's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Continental Resources'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, Continental Resources 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.
Continental Resources's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8104. 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 Continental Resources's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Recently Continental Resources has paid out, on average, around 7.32% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Continental Resources shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Continental Resources's case, that would currently equate to about $0.99 per share.
While Continental Resources's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Continental Resources is investing more in its future growth.
Continental Resources's most recent dividend payout was on 22 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Continental Resources's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 September 2014. 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 Continental Resources shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Continental Resources shares which in turn could have impacted Continental Resources's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Continental Resources's shares have ranged in value from as little as $49.346 up to $75.1652. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
