Is Baker Hughes Company under- or over-valued?

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

Baker Hughes Company's P/E ratio

Baker Hughes Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 74x. In other words, Baker Hughes Company shares trade at around 74x 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.

Baker Hughes Company's PEG ratio

Baker Hughes Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7684. 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 Baker Hughes Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Baker Hughes Company's EBITDA

Baker Hughes Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2.1 billion.

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

There are currently 9.6 million Baker Hughes Company shares held short by investors – that's known as Baker Hughes Company's "short interest". This figure is 78.9% down from 45.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Baker Hughes Company shares can be evaluated.

Baker Hughes Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Baker Hughes Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Baker Hughes Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Baker Hughes Company shares traded daily (recently around 6.5 million). Baker Hughes Company's SIR currently stands at 1.48. In other words for every 100,000 Baker Hughes Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1480 shares are currently held short.

However Baker Hughes Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Baker Hughes Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable Baker Hughes Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Baker Hughes Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Baker Hughes Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0181% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Baker Hughes Company shares, roughly 18 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 Baker Hughes Company.

Baker Hughes Company share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 2400% of net profits

Recently Baker Hughes Company has paid out, on average, around 2400% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Baker Hughes Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Baker Hughes Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.72 per share.

Baker Hughes Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Baker Hughes Company's most recent dividend payout was on 19 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Baker Hughes Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Baker Hughes Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.7429 up to $24.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BKR.US volatility(beta: 1.78)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 Baker Hughes Company's is 1.7764. This would suggest that Baker Hughes Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
