Is Schlumberger stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Schlumberger's P/E ratio

Schlumberger's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Schlumberger shares trade at around 24x 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.

Schlumberger's PEG ratio

Schlumberger's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7168. 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 Schlumberger's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Schlumberger's EBITDA

Schlumberger's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $5.8 billion.

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

Schlumberger's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Schlumberger.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Schlumberger's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 22.29

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Schlumberger's overall score of 22.29 (as at 12/31/2018) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 42nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Schlumberger is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Schlumberger's environmental score

Environmental score: 9.22/100

Schlumberger share dividends

36%

Dividend payout ratio: 35.55% of net profits

Recently Schlumberger has paid out, on average, around 35.55% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Schlumberger shareholders could enjoy a 1.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Schlumberger's case, that would currently equate to about $0.65 per share.

While Schlumberger's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Schlumberger may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Schlumberger's most recent dividend payout was on 5 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 February 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Schlumberger's shares ever split?

Schlumberger's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 April 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Schlumberger shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Schlumberger shares which in turn could have impacted Schlumberger's share price.

Schlumberger share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Schlumberger's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.4025 up to $62.78. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SLB.US volatility(beta: 1.81)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Schlumberger's is 1.8082. This would suggest that Schlumberger's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
