Is Frontline stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Frontline stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Frontline's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Frontline's P/E ratio
Frontline's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Frontline shares trade at around 7x 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.
Frontline's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $581.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Frontline's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$1.4 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||30.3%|
|Gross profit TTM||$631.7 million|

Frontline share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 79.22% of net profits
Recently Frontline has paid out, on average, around 79.22% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 25.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Frontline shareholders could enjoy a 25.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Frontline's case, that would currently equate to about $1.22 per share.
Frontline'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.
Frontline's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Frontline's shares ever split?
Frontline's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 2 February 2016. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Frontline shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Frontline shares which in turn could have impacted Frontline's share price.
Frontline share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Frontline's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.9519 up to $18.1301. 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 Frontline's is 0.261. This would suggest that Frontline's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
