Is DCP Midstream under- or over-valued?

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

DCP Midstream's P/E ratio

DCP Midstream's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 43x. In other words, DCP Midstream shares trade at around 43x 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.

DCP Midstream's PEG ratio

DCP Midstream's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.757. 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 DCP Midstream's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

DCP Midstream's EBITDA

Shorting DCP Midstream shares

There are currently 3.7 million DCP Midstream shares held short by investors – that's known as DCP Midstream's "short interest". This figure is 5.2% down from 3.9 million last month.

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

DCP Midstream's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

DCP Midstream's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DCP Midstream shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DCP Midstream shares traded daily (recently around 613239.4295302). DCP Midstream's SIR currently stands at 5.96. In other words for every 100,000 DCP Midstream shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5960 shares are currently held short.

However DCP Midstream's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DCP Midstream shares, or, against the total number of tradable DCP Midstream shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DCP Midstream's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DCP Midstream shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0402% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DCP Midstream shares, roughly 40 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against DCP Midstream.

DCP Midstream share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 2.03% of net profits

Recently DCP Midstream has paid out, on average, around 2.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), DCP Midstream shareholders could enjoy a 4.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In DCP Midstream's case, that would currently equate to about $1.56 per share.

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

DCP Midstream's most recent dividend payout was on 12 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
