Is TransGlobe Energy Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's P/E ratio

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares trade at around 2x 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.

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's PEG ratio

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.35. 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 TransGlobe Energy Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's EBITDA

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $221 million.

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

TransGlobe Energy Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 8.4% of net profits

Recently TransGlobe Energy Corporation has paid out, on average, around 8.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.38% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TransGlobe Energy Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 5.38% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TransGlobe Energy Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.

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

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 12 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have TransGlobe Energy Corporation's shares ever split?

TransGlobe Energy Corporation's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 21 May 1992. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for TransGlobe Energy Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted TransGlobe Energy Corporation's share price.

TransGlobe Energy Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TransGlobe Energy Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.47 up to $5.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TGA.US volatility(beta: 2.32)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while TransGlobe Energy Corporation's is 2.318. This would suggest that TransGlobe Energy Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
