Is Occidental Petroleum Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's P/E ratio

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares trade at around 6x 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.

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's PEG ratio

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2175. 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 Occidental Petroleum Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

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 Occidental Petroleum Corporation.

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: 44.66

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Occidental Petroleum Corporation's overall score of 44.66 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 93rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Occidental Petroleum Corporation 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.).

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 26.91/100

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's environmental score of 26.91 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Occidental Petroleum Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's social score

Social score: 15.82/100

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's social score of 15.82 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Occidental Petroleum Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 11.93/100

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Occidental Petroleum Corporation 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. Occidental Petroleum Corporation scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Occidental Petroleum Corporation has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Occidental Petroleum Corporation share dividends

5%

Dividend payout ratio: 5.24% of net profits

Recently Occidental Petroleum Corporation has paid out, on average, around 5.24% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.89% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Occidental Petroleum Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Occidental Petroleum Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.28 per share.

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

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 17 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Occidental Petroleum Corporation's shares ever split?

Occidental Petroleum Corporation's shares were split on a 10000:9983 basis on 25 February 2016. So if you had owned 9983 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 0.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Occidental Petroleum Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Occidental Petroleum Corporation's share price.

Occidental Petroleum Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Occidental Petroleum Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $25.8868 up to $76.9748. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OXY.US volatility(beta: 1.86)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Occidental Petroleum Corporation's is 1.8558. This would suggest that Occidental Petroleum Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
