Is Royal Gold stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Royal Gold stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Royal Gold's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Royal Gold's P/E ratio
Royal Gold's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Royal Gold shares trade at around 31x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Royal Gold's PEG ratio
Royal Gold's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.41. 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 Royal Gold's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Royal Gold's EBITDA
Royal Gold's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $469.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Royal Gold's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Royal Gold share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 43.35% of net profits
Recently Royal Gold has paid out, on average, around 43.35% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.36% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Royal Gold shareholders could enjoy a 1.36% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Royal Gold's case, that would currently equate to about $0.75 per share.
While Royal Gold's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Royal Gold may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Royal Gold's most recent dividend payout was on 19 October 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 October 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Royal Gold share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Royal Gold's shares have ranged in value from as little as $85.9563 up to $147.3359. 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 Royal Gold's is 0.6474. This would suggest that Royal Gold's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
