Valuing Oasis Petroleum stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Oasis Petroleum's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Oasis 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 3x. In other words, Oasis Petroleum shares trade at around 3x 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.
Oasis Petroleum's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 16.3835. 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 Oasis 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.
Oasis Petroleum's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$559.4 million.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 73,774 Oasis Petroleum shares held short by investors – that's known as Oasis Petroleum's "short interest". This figure is 48.2% up from 49,790 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Oasis Petroleum shares can be evaluated.
Oasis Petroleum's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Oasis Petroleum shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Oasis Petroleum shares traded daily (recently around 223557.57575758). Oasis Petroleum's SIR currently stands at 0.33. In other words for every 100,000 Oasis Petroleum shares traded daily on the market, roughly 330 shares are currently held short.
However Oasis Petroleum's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Oasis Petroleum shares, or, against the total number of tradable Oasis Petroleum shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Oasis Petroleum's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Oasis Petroleum shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0047% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Oasis Petroleum shares, roughly 5 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 Oasis Petroleum.

Dividend payout ratio: 0.98% of net profits
Recently Oasis Petroleum has paid out, on average, around 0.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.41% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Oasis Petroleum shareholders could enjoy a 2.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Oasis Petroleum's case, that would currently equate to about $0.375 per share.
While Oasis Petroleum's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Oasis Petroleum is investing more in its future growth.
Oasis Petroleum's most recent dividend payout was on 21 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Oasis Petroleum's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.8726 up to $65.99. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Oasis Petroleum's is 3.9391. This would suggest that Oasis Petroleum's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
