Is Equinor ASA under- or over-valued?

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

Equinor ASA's P/E ratio

Equinor ASA's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, Equinor ASA shares trade at around 34x 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.

Equinor ASA's PEG ratio

Equinor ASA's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.3803. 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 Equinor ASA's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Equinor ASA's EBITDA

Equinor ASA's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $26.3 billion.

Equinor ASA share dividends

22%

Dividend payout ratio: 22.38% of net profits

Recently Equinor ASA has paid out, on average, around 22.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Equinor ASA shareholders could enjoy a 2.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Equinor ASA's case, that would currently equate to about $0.63 per share.

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

Equinor ASA's most recent dividend payout was on 23 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
