Is Gold Fields under- or over-valued?

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

Gold Fields's P/E ratio

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

Gold Fields's EBITDA

Gold Fields's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.3 billion.

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

Gold Fields share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 82.08% of net profits

Recently Gold Fields has paid out, on average, around 82.08% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.44% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Gold Fields shareholders could enjoy a 3.44% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Gold Fields's case, that would currently equate to about $0.382 per share.

Gold Fields's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

Gold Fields's most recent dividend payout was on 22 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Gold Fields's shares ever split?

Gold Fields's shares were split on a 1161:1000 basis on 20 February 2013. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1161 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Gold Fields shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 13.9% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gold Fields shares which in turn could have impacted Gold Fields's share price.

Gold Fields share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Gold Fields's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.75 up to $12.3285. 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 Gold Fields's is 0.431. This would suggest that Gold Fields's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

How has Coronavirus impacted Gold Fields's stock price?

Since the stock market crash in March caused by coronavirus, Gold Fields's stock price has had significant positive movement.

Its last market close was $9.84, which is 24.19% up on its pre-crash value of $7.46 and 159.63% up on the lowest point reached during the March crash when the stocks fell as low as $3.79.

If you had bought $1,000 worth of Gold Fields stocks at the start of February 2020, those stocks would have been worth $719.21 at the bottom of the March crash, and if you held on to them, then as of the last market close they'd be worth $1,535.14.
