Is Ecopetrol SA ADR stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Ecopetrol SA ADR's P/E ratio

Ecopetrol SA ADR's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Ecopetrol SA ADR shares trade at around 5x 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.

Ecopetrol SA ADR's PEG ratio

Ecopetrol SA ADR's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3. 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 Ecopetrol SA ADR's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ecopetrol SA ADR share dividends

93%

Dividend payout ratio: 93.45% of net profits

Recently Ecopetrol SA ADR has paid out, on average, around 93.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 13.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ecopetrol SA ADR shareholders could enjoy a 13.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ecopetrol SA ADR's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.

Ecopetrol SA ADR'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.

Ecopetrol SA ADR's most recent dividend payout was on 27 April 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Ecopetrol SA ADR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ecopetrol SA ADR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.7763 up to $18.2828. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EC.US volatility(beta: 1.09)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ecopetrol SA ADR's is 1.0891. This would suggest that Ecopetrol SA ADR's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
