Is Halliburton Company under- or over-valued?

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

Halliburton Company's P/E ratio

Halliburton Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 64x. In other words, Halliburton Company shares trade at around 64x 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.

Halliburton Company's PEG ratio

Halliburton Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4471. 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 Halliburton Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Halliburton Company's EBITDA

Halliburton Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.4 billion.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Halliburton Company 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.).

Halliburton Company's environmental score

Environmental score: 14.17/100

Halliburton Company's environmental score of 14.17 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Halliburton Company is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Halliburton Company share dividends

20%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.78% of net profits

Recently Halliburton Company has paid out, on average, around 19.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.63% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Halliburton Company shareholders could enjoy a 0.63% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Halliburton Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.18 per share.

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

Halliburton Company's most recent dividend payout was on 21 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Halliburton Company's shares ever split?

Halliburton Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 July 2006. 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 Halliburton Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Halliburton Company shares which in turn could have impacted Halliburton Company's share price.

Halliburton Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Halliburton Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.0919 up to $28.85. 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 Halliburton Company's is 2.7598. This would suggest that Halliburton Company's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
