Is PetroChina Company under- or over-valued?
Valuing PetroChina Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of PetroChina Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
PetroChina Company's P/E ratio
PetroChina Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, PetroChina Company shares trade at around 8x 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.
PetroChina Company's PEG ratio
PetroChina Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1828. 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 PetroChina Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
PetroChina Company's EBITDA
PetroChina Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $282.9 billion.

Shorting PetroChina Company shares
There are currently 506,266 PetroChina Company shares held short by investors – that's known as PetroChina Company's "short interest". This figure is 42.9% up from 354,361 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting PetroChina Company shares can be evaluated.
PetroChina Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
PetroChina Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PetroChina Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PetroChina Company shares traded daily (recently around 249392.1182266). PetroChina Company's SIR currently stands at 2.03. In other words for every 100,000 PetroChina Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2030 shares are currently held short.
However PetroChina Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PetroChina Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable PetroChina Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PetroChina Company's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PetroChina Company shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0018% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PetroChina Company shares, roughly 2 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 PetroChina Company.

PetroChina Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 41.3% of net profits
Recently PetroChina Company has paid out, on average, around 41.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.07% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PetroChina Company shareholders could enjoy a 6.07% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PetroChina Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.175 per share.
While PetroChina Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that PetroChina Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
PetroChina Company's most recent dividend payout was on 8 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
