Is BHP Group under- or over-valued?

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

BHP Group's P/E ratio

BHP Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, BHP Group shares trade at around 15x 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.

BHP Group's EBITDA

BHP Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $36 billion.

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

BHP Group share dividends

4%

Dividend payout ratio: 4.11% of net profits

Recently BHP Group has paid out, on average, around 4.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), BHP Group shareholders could enjoy a 9.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In BHP Group's case, that would currently equate to about $3.01 per share.

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

BHP Group's most recent dividend payout was on 21 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have BHP Group's shares ever split?

BHP Group's shares were split on a 1:2 basis on 23 April 2002. So if you had owned 2 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 BHP Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for BHP Group shares which in turn could have impacted BHP Group's share price.

BHP Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BHP Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $49.4563 up to $66.53. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BBL.US volatility(beta: 0.85)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 BHP Group's is 0.8464. This would suggest that BHP Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
