Is DCP Midstream stock undervalued or overvalued?
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.

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.

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 share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 43.13% of net profits
Recently DCP Midstream has paid out, on average, around 43.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.58% 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 4.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In DCP Midstream's case, that would currently equate to about $1.6 per share.
While DCP Midstream's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that DCP Midstream may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
