Is Suncor Energy under- or over-valued?

Suncor Energy's P/E ratio

Suncor Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, Suncor Energy shares trade at around 10x recent earnings.

Suncor Energy's PEG ratio

Suncor Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.25. 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 Suncor Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Suncor Energy'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 Suncor Energy.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Suncor Energy's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 35.42

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Suncor Energy's overall score of 35.42 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 64th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Suncor Energy 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.).

Suncor Energy's environmental score

Environmental score: 18.69/100

Suncor Energy's environmental score of 18.69 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Suncor Energy is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Suncor Energy's social score

Social score: 10.84/100

Suncor Energy's social score of 10.84 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Suncor Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Suncor Energy's governance score

Governance score: 7.89/100

Suncor Energy's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Suncor Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Suncor Energy's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Suncor Energy scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Suncor Energy has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Suncor Energy share dividends

38%

Dividend payout ratio: 38.1% of net profits

Recently Suncor Energy has paid out, on average, around 38.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Suncor Energy shareholders could enjoy a 4.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Suncor Energy's case, that would currently equate to about C$1.26 per share.

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

Suncor Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 24 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Suncor Energy's shares ever split?

Suncor Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 May 2008. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Suncor Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Suncor Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Suncor Energy's share price.

Suncor Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Suncor Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$20.9843 up to C$53.62. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SU.TO volatility(beta: 1.84)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while Suncor Energy's is 1.8448. This would suggest that Suncor Energy's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
