Is GeoPark under- or over-valued?

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

GeoPark's P/E ratio

GeoPark's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, GeoPark shares trade at around 8x 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.

GeoPark's EBITDA

GeoPark's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $324.6 million.

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

GeoPark share dividends

13%

Dividend payout ratio: 13.13% of net profits

Recently GeoPark has paid out, on average, around 13.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), GeoPark shareholders could enjoy a 2.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In GeoPark's case, that would currently equate to about $0.164 per share.

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

GeoPark's most recent dividend payout was on 9 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have GeoPark's shares ever split?

GeoPark's shares were split on a 251:250 basis on 23 February 2020. So if you had owned 250 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 251 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your GeoPark shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for GeoPark shares which in turn could have impacted GeoPark's share price.

GeoPark share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, GeoPark's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.3654 up to $18.52. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

GPRK.US volatility(beta: 1.58)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 GeoPark's is 1.5812. This would suggest that GeoPark's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
