Is ONE Gas under- or over-valued?

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

ONE Gas's P/E ratio

ONE Gas's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, ONE Gas shares trade at around 20x 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.

ONE Gas's PEG ratio

ONE Gas's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.19. 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 ONE Gas's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ONE Gas's EBITDA

ONE Gas's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$484.3 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a ONE Gas's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting ONE Gas shares

There are currently 1.6 million ONE Gas shares held short by investors – that's known as ONE Gas's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% up from 1.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting ONE Gas shares can be evaluated.

ONE Gas's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ONE Gas's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ONE Gas shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ONE Gas shares traded daily (recently around 275209.56375839). ONE Gas's SIR currently stands at 5.96. In other words for every 100,000 ONE Gas shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5960 shares are currently held short.

However ONE Gas's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ONE Gas shares, or, against the total number of tradable ONE Gas shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ONE Gas's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ONE Gas shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0406% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ONE Gas shares, roughly 41 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against ONE Gas.

ONE Gas share dividends

85%

Dividend payout ratio: 84.94% of net profits

Recently ONE Gas has paid out, on average, around 84.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ONE Gas shareholders could enjoy a 3.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ONE Gas's case, that would currently equate to about $2.12 per share.

ONE Gas'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.

ONE Gas's most recent dividend payout was on 5 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

ONE Gas share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ONE Gas's shares have ranged in value from as little as $61.8492 up to $89.3691. 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 ONE Gas's is 0.397. This would suggest that ONE Gas's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
