Valuing Kinder Morgan stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Kinder Morgan's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Kinder Morgan's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 23x. In other words, Kinder Morgan shares trade at around 23x 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.
Kinder Morgan's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.0447. 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 Kinder Morgan's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Kinder Morgan's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Kinder Morgan's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 37.2 million Kinder Morgan shares held short by investors – that's known as Kinder Morgan's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 37.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Kinder Morgan shares can be evaluated.
Kinder Morgan's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Kinder Morgan shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Kinder Morgan shares traded daily (recently around 13.4 million). Kinder Morgan's SIR currently stands at 2.77. In other words for every 100,000 Kinder Morgan shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2770 shares are currently held short.
However Kinder Morgan's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Kinder Morgan shares, or, against the total number of tradable Kinder Morgan shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Kinder Morgan's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Kinder Morgan shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0191% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Kinder Morgan shares, roughly 19 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Kinder Morgan.
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Kinder Morgan.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 19.31
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Kinder Morgan's overall score of 19.31 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 17th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Kinder Morgan 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.).
Environmental score: 7.05/100
Kinder Morgan's environmental score of 7.05 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Kinder Morgan is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 5.04/100
Kinder Morgan's social score of 5.04 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Kinder Morgan is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 3.73/100
Kinder Morgan's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Kinder Morgan is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Kinder Morgan scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Kinder Morgan has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Dividend payout ratio: 70.1% of net profits
Recently Kinder Morgan has paid out, on average, around 70.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kinder Morgan shareholders could enjoy a 6.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kinder Morgan's case, that would currently equate to about $1.073 per share.
Kinder Morgan'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.
Kinder Morgan's most recent dividend payout was on 16 August 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Kinder Morgan's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 20 January 2015. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Kinder Morgan shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Kinder Morgan shares which in turn could have impacted Kinder Morgan's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Kinder Morgan's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.7135 up to $18.8783. 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 Kinder Morgan's is 1.0672. This would suggest that Kinder Morgan's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
