Valuing Imperial Oil stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Imperial Oil's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Imperial Oil's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.85. 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 Imperial Oil's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Imperial Oil's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.4 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Imperial Oil's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 6.7 million Imperial Oil shares held short by investors – that's known as Imperial Oil's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% up from 6.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Imperial Oil shares can be evaluated.
Imperial Oil's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Imperial Oil shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Imperial Oil shares traded daily (recently around 385626.82366456). Imperial Oil's SIR currently stands at 17.41. In other words for every 100,000 Imperial Oil shares traded daily on the market, roughly 17410 shares are currently held short.
However Imperial Oil's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Imperial Oil shares, or, against the total number of tradable Imperial Oil shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Imperial Oil's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Imperial Oil shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0353% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Imperial Oil shares, roughly 35 shares are currently held short).
A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Imperial Oil.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Imperial Oil.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 46.58
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Imperial Oil's overall score of 46.58 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 95th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Imperial Oil is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 29.6/100
Imperial Oil's environmental score of 29.6 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Imperial Oil is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 13.46/100
Imperial Oil's social score of 13.46 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Imperial Oil is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 13.02/100
Imperial Oil's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Imperial Oil is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 1/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Imperial Oil scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that Imperial Oil has managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||46.58|
|Total ESG percentile||95.18|
|Environmental score percentile||5|
|Social score percentile||5|
|Governance score percentile||5|
|Level of controversy||1|
Dividend payout ratio: 92.1% of net profits
Recently Imperial Oil has paid out, on average, around 92.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Imperial Oil shareholders could enjoy a 2.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Imperial Oil's case, that would currently equate to about $0.93 per share.
Imperial Oil'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.
Imperial Oil's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Imperial Oil's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 29 May 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Imperial Oil shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Imperial Oil shares which in turn could have impacted Imperial Oil's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Imperial Oil's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.5796 up to $35.16. 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 MKT average) beta is 1, while Imperial Oil's is 2.1643. This would suggest that Imperial Oil's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
