Is HighPeak 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.

HighPeak Energy share dividends

33%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.73% of net profits

Recently HighPeak Energy has paid out, on average, around 32.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HighPeak Energy shareholders could enjoy a 0.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HighPeak Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.05 per share.

While HighPeak Energy's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that HighPeak Energy may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

HighPeak Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 24 February 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

HighPeak Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, HighPeak Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.9335 up to $18.97. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HPK.US volatility(beta: 1)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while HighPeak Energy's is 0.9996. This would suggest that HighPeak Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
