Valuing Independent Oil and Gas stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Independent Oil and Gas's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Independent Oil and Gas's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 4x. In other words, Independent Oil and Gas shares trade at around 4x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the FTSE 250 at the end of September 2019 (19.71). 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, Independent Oil and Gas's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the oil & gas e&p industry or those of similar companies.
