Is Devon Energy Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

Devon Energy Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 105.42% of net profits
Recently Devon Energy Corporation has paid out, on average, around 105.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Devon Energy Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Devon Energy Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.24 per share.
Devon Energy Corporation's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Devon Energy Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 29 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Devon Energy Corporation's shares ever split?
Devon Energy Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 November 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 Devon Energy Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Devon Energy Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Devon Energy Corporation's share price.
Devon Energy Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Devon Energy Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $15.3897 up to $51.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
