Is ConocoPhillips 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

ConocoPhillips's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, ConocoPhillips shares trade at around 9x 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.

PEG ratio

ConocoPhillips's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4958. A PEG ratio below 1 can be interpreted as meaning the shares are not overvalued 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 ConocoPhillips's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

23.5%

Dividend payout ratio: 23.48% of net profits

ConocoPhillips has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 1.91% of its share value annually.

ConocoPhillips has paid out, on average, around 23.48% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.91% 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 1.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ConocoPhillips's case, that would currently equate to about $3.04 per share.

While ConocoPhillips's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that the company is investing more in its future growth.

ConocoPhillips's most recent dividend payout was on 13 January 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

COP.US volatility(beta: 1.34)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while ConocoPhillips's is 1.3362. This would suggest that ConocoPhillips's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
