Is Sunoco stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Sunoco stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Sunoco's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Sunoco's P/E ratio
Sunoco's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 11x. In other words, Sunoco shares trade at around 11x 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.
Sunoco's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $800 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Sunoco's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$25.7 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||2.36%|
|Gross profit TTM||$1.4 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||5.76%|
|Return on equity TTM||41.15%|
|Market capitalisation||$3.6 billion|
TTM: trailing 12 months
Sunoco share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 87.79% of net profits
Recently Sunoco has paid out, on average, around 87.79% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.82% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Sunoco shareholders could enjoy a 7.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Sunoco's case, that would currently equate to about $3.319 per share.
Sunoco'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.
Sunoco's most recent dividend payout was on 22 May 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Sunoco share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Sunoco's shares have ranged in value from as little as $31.756 up to $47.002. 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 Sunoco's is 1.3177. This would suggest that Sunoco's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
