Is RPC stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing RPC stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of RPC's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
RPC's P/E ratio
RPC's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, RPC shares trade at around 17x 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.
RPC's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $177 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a RPC's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$1.2 billion|

RPC share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 5.41% of net profits
Recently RPC has paid out, on average, around 5.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), RPC shareholders could enjoy a 1.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In RPC's case, that would currently equate to about $0 per share.
While RPC's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that RPC is investing more in its future growth.
RPC's most recent dividend payout was on 8 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have RPC's shares ever split?
RPC's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 11 March 2012. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your RPC shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for RPC shares which in turn could have impacted RPC's share price.
RPC share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, RPC's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.8094 up to $12.8742. 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 RPC's is 1.6181. This would suggest that RPC's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
