Is Kinder Morgan under- or over-valued?
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 P/E ratio
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 16x. In other words, Kinder Morgan shares trade at around 16x 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 PEG ratio
Kinder Morgan's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.1851. 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 environmental, social and governance track record
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.
Kinder Morgan's total ESG risk score
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 12/31/2018) 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.).
Kinder Morgan's environmental score
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.
Kinder Morgan's social score
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.

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.
Kinder Morgan share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 101.39% of net profits
Recently Kinder Morgan has paid out, on average, around 101.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.72% 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 6.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kinder Morgan's case, that would currently equate to about $1.095 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 14 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 July 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Kinder Morgan's shares ever split?
Kinder Morgan's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 19 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.
Kinder Morgan share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Kinder Morgan's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.3384 up to $19.8893. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
