Is Vermilion Energy stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Vermilion Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vermilion Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vermilion Energy's P/E ratio
Vermilion 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 2x. In other words, Vermilion Energy shares trade at around 2x 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.
Vermilion Energy's PEG ratio
Vermilion Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.58. 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 Vermilion 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.

Recently Vermilion Energy has paid out, on average, around 3.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vermilion Energy shareholders could enjoy a 2.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vermilion Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.
While Vermilion Energy's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Vermilion Energy is investing more in its future growth.

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Vermilion Energy's is 2.9086. This would suggest that Vermilion Energy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
