Is Yamana Gold stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Yamana Gold stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Yamana Gold's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Yamana Gold's P/E ratio
Yamana 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 16x. In other words, Yamana Gold shares trade at around 16x 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.
Yamana Gold's PEG ratio
Yamana Gold's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 6.99. 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 Yamana 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.
Yamana Gold's EBITDA
Yamana Gold's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Yamana Gold's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Yamana Gold share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 34.29% of net profits
Recently Yamana Gold has paid out, on average, around 34.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Yamana Gold shareholders could enjoy a 2.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Yamana Gold's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.
While Yamana Gold's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Yamana Gold may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Yamana Gold's most recent dividend payout was on 14 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Yamana Gold's shares ever split?
Yamana Gold's shares were split on a 35:1000 basis on 21 August 2003. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 35 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Yamana Gold shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2757.1% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Yamana Gold shares which in turn could have impacted Yamana Gold's share price.
Yamana Gold share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Yamana Gold's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.6059 up to $6.3174. 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 Yamana Gold's is 1.3512. This would suggest that Yamana Gold's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
