Is Diamondback Energy under- or over-valued?

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.

Diamondback Energy's PEG ratio

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Diamondback Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Diamondback Energy shareholders could enjoy a 1.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Diamondback Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $1.75 per share.

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