Is Barrick Gold under- or over-valued?

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

P/E ratio

Barrick Gold's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Barrick Gold shares trade at around 14x 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.

However, Barrick Gold's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the gold industry or those of similar companies.

PEG ratio

Barrick Gold's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.07. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Barrick Gold's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider Barrick Gold's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

    EBITDA

    Barrick Gold's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $6.2 billion (£5.5 billion).

    The EBITDA is a measure of a Barrick Gold's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

    5.2%

    Forward annual dividend yield: 5.16% of stock value

    66.6%

    Dividend payout ratio: 66.55% of net profits

    Barrick Gold has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 5.16% of its share value annually.

    Barrick Gold has paid out, on average, around 66.55% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 5.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Barrick Gold's case, that would currently equate to about $0.39 per share.

    Barrick Gold'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.

    Barrick Gold's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

    Barrick Gold's dividend yield is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.

    Over the last 12 months, Barrick Gold's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.97 up to $25.4899. 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 Barrick Gold's is 0.1314. This would suggest that Barrick Gold's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
