Is Devon Energy Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Devon Energy Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Devon Energy Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Devon Energy Corporation's P/E ratio
Devon 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 5x. In other words, Devon Energy Corporation shares trade at around 5x 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.
Devon Energy Corporation's PEG ratio
Devon Energy Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.48. 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 Devon 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.

Devon Energy Corporation's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Devon Energy Corporation.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Devon Energy Corporation's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 42.01
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Devon Energy Corporation's overall score of 42.01 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 77th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Devon Energy Corporation is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Devon Energy Corporation's environmental score
Environmental score: 23.2/100
Devon Energy Corporation's environmental score of 23.2 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Devon Energy Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Devon Energy Corporation's social score
Social score: 13.68/100
Devon Energy Corporation's social score of 13.68 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Devon Energy Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Devon Energy Corporation's governance score
Governance score: 15.12/100
Devon Energy Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Devon Energy Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Devon Energy Corporation's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Devon Energy Corporation scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Devon Energy Corporation has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Devon Energy Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 48.42% of net profits
Recently Devon Energy Corporation has paid out, on average, around 48.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Devon Energy Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 9.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Devon Energy Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $5.06 per share.
While Devon Energy Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Devon Energy Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Devon Energy Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Devon Energy Corporation's shares ever split?
Devon Energy Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 November 2004. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Devon Energy Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Devon Energy Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Devon Energy Corporation's share price.
Devon Energy Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Devon Energy Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $44.03 up to $76.8356. 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 Devon Energy Corporation's is 2.3621. This would suggest that Devon Energy Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
