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.

Recently Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation has paid out, on average, around 4.55% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.8% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.8% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.08 per share.

While Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Magnolia Oil-and-Gas Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
