Is Diamondback Energy stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Diamondback Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Diamondback Energy'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.

Diamondback Energy's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Diamondback Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Diamondback Energy share dividends

40%

Dividend payout ratio: 40.04% of net profits

Recently Diamondback Energy has paid out, on average, around 40.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Diamondback Energy shareholders could enjoy a 6.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Diamondback Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $8.96 per share.

While Diamondback Energy's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Diamondback Energy may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Diamondback Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 25 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 November 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Diamondback Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Diamondback Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $89.0428 up to $166.664. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FANG.US volatility(beta: 2.02)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Diamondback Energy's is 2.0165. This would suggest that Diamondback Energy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
