Is Suncor Energy under- or over-valued?

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

Suncor Energy's P/E ratio

Suncor Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1423x. In other words, Suncor Energy shares trade at around 1423x 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.

Suncor Energy's PEG ratio

Suncor Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.07. 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 Suncor Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Suncor Energy's EBITDA

Suncor Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $5 billion.

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

Shorting Suncor Energy shares

There are currently 11.1 million Suncor Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Suncor Energy's "short interest". This figure is 18.4% up from 9.4 million last month.

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

Suncor Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Suncor Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Suncor Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Suncor Energy shares traded daily (recently around 5.5 million). Suncor Energy's SIR currently stands at 2. In other words for every 100,000 Suncor Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2000 shares are currently held short.

However Suncor Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Suncor Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Suncor Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Suncor Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Suncor Energy shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0074% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Suncor Energy shares, roughly 7 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 Suncor Energy.

Suncor Energy'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 Suncor Energy.

Total ESG risk: 29.42

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Suncor Energy's overall score of 29.42 (as at 12/31/2018) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 58th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Suncor Energy 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.).

Suncor Energy share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 3.7% of net profits

Recently Suncor Energy has paid out, on average, around 3.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.35% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Suncor Energy shareholders could enjoy a 3.35% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Suncor Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.835 per share.

While Suncor Energy's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Suncor Energy is investing more in its future growth.

Suncor Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 24 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Suncor Energy's shares ever split?

Suncor Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 May 2008. 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 Suncor Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Suncor Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Suncor Energy's share price.

Suncor Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Suncor Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.4041 up to $25.73. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SU.US volatility(beta: 1.99)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 Suncor Energy's is 1.9928. This would suggest that Suncor Energy's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
