Is Laredo Petroleum stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Laredo Petroleum's P/E ratio

Laredo Petroleum's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Laredo Petroleum shares trade at around 1x 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.

Laredo Petroleum's PEG ratio

Laredo Petroleum's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.0418. 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 Laredo Petroleum's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Laredo Petroleum's shares were split on a 1:20 basis on 1 June 2020. So if you had owned 20 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 Laredo Petroleum shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Laredo Petroleum shares which in turn could have impacted Laredo Petroleum's share price.
