Is EOG Resources under- or over-valued?

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.

Shorting EOG Resources shares
There are currently 6.3 million EOG Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as EOG Resources's "short interest". This figure is 25.1% down from 8.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting EOG Resources shares can be evaluated.
EOG Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
EOG Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EOG Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EOG Resources shares traded daily (recently around 4.5 million). EOG Resources's SIR currently stands at 1.41. In other words for every 100,000 EOG Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1410 shares are currently held short.
However EOG Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EOG Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable EOG Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EOG Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EOG Resources shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0108% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EOG Resources shares, roughly 11 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against EOG Resources.

EOG Resources share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 56.54% of net profits
Recently EOG Resources has paid out, on average, around 56.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EOG Resources shareholders could enjoy a 2.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EOG Resources's case, that would currently equate to about $1.538 per share.
EOG Resources'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.
EOG Resources's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have EOG Resources's shares ever split?
EOG Resources's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 March 2014. 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 EOG Resources shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for EOG Resources shares which in turn could have impacted EOG Resources's share price.
EOG Resources share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, EOG Resources's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.6985 up to $87.5343. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while EOG Resources's is 2.1616. This would suggest that EOG Resources's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
