Is National Fuel Gas Company stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing National Fuel Gas Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of National Fuel Gas Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

Dividend payout ratio: 42.29% of net profits
Recently National Fuel Gas Company has paid out, on average, around 42.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), National Fuel Gas Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In National Fuel Gas Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.
While National Fuel Gas Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that National Fuel Gas Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
National Fuel Gas Company's most recent dividend payout was on 13 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have National Fuel Gas Company's shares ever split?
National Fuel Gas Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 September 2001. 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 National Fuel Gas Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for National Fuel Gas Company shares which in turn could have impacted National Fuel Gas Company's share price.
