Is it a good time to buy Diamondback Energy stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Diamondback Energy under- or over-valued?

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

Diamondback Energy's P/E ratio

Diamondback 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 40x. In other words, Diamondback Energy shares trade at around 40x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Diamondback Energy's PEG ratio

Diamondback Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2021. 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 Diamondback 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.

Diamondback Energy's EBITDA

Diamondback Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $2.2 billion.

There are currently 7.1 million Diamondback Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Diamondback Energy's "short interest". This figure is 6.3% down from 7.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Diamondback Energy shares can be evaluated.

Diamondback Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Diamondback Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Diamondback Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Diamondback Energy shares traded daily (recently around 4.3 million). Diamondback Energy's SIR currently stands at 1.67. In other words for every 100,000 Diamondback Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1670 shares are currently held short.

However Diamondback Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Diamondback Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Diamondback Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Diamondback Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Diamondback Energy shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0594% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Diamondback Energy shares, roughly 59 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Diamondback Energy.

Diamondback Energy share dividends

36%

Dividend payout ratio: 36.14% of net profits

Recently Diamondback Energy has paid out, on average, around 36.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Diamondback Energy shareholders could enjoy a 2.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Diamondback Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $1.5 per share.

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

Diamondback Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 19 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Diamondback Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Diamondback Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.1294 up to $78.6655. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Diamondback Energy's is 2.5783. This would suggest that Diamondback Energy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
