Is Africa Oil under- or over-valued?

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

Africa Oil's P/E ratio

Africa Oil's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 7x. In other words, Africa Oil shares trade at around 7x recent earnings.

Africa Oil's PEG ratio

Africa Oil's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.46. 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 Africa Oil's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Africa Oil's EBITDA

Africa Oil's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is C$197.6 million.

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

Africa Oil share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 17.96% of net profits

Recently Africa Oil has paid out, on average, around 17.96% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.23% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Africa Oil shareholders could enjoy a 2.23% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Africa Oil's case, that would currently equate to about C$0 per share.

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

Africa Oil's most recent dividend payout was on 30 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Africa Oil's shares ever split?

Africa Oil's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 22 September 1999. 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 Africa Oil shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Africa Oil shares which in turn could have impacted Africa Oil's share price.

Africa Oil share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Africa Oil's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$1.6821 up to C$3.44. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AOI.TO volatility(beta: 1.63)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while Africa Oil's is 1.6335. This would suggest that Africa Oil's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
