Is Barrick Gold Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Barrick Gold Corporation's P/E ratio

Barrick Gold 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 14x. In other words, Barrick Gold Corporation 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 Corporation's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the gold industry or those of similar companies.

Barrick Gold Corporation's PEG ratio

Barrick Gold Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 10.07. 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 Barrick Gold 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.

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

      Barrick Gold Corporation share dividends

      32%

      Dividend payout ratio: 31.96% of net profits

      Recently Barrick Gold Corporation has paid out, on average, around 31.96% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Barrick Gold Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Barrick Gold Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.

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

      Barrick Gold Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

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

      Have Barrick Gold Corporation's shares ever split?

      Barrick Gold Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 March 1993. 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 Barrick Gold Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Barrick Gold Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Barrick Gold Corporation's share price.

      Barrick Gold Corporation share price volatility
