Is it a good time to buy OGE 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 OGE Energy under- or over-valued?

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

OGE Energy's P/E ratio

OGE 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 14x. In other words, OGE Energy 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.

OGE Energy's PEG ratio

OGE Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.1046. 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 OGE 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.

OGE Energy's EBITDA

OGE Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $883.7 million.

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

How to short and sell OGE Energy shares

  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "OGE.US"

There are currently 1.6 million OGE Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as OGE Energy's "short interest". This figure is 39.9% down from 2.7 million last month.

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

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

OGE Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of OGE Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of OGE Energy shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). OGE Energy's SIR currently stands at 1.48. In other words for every 100,000 OGE Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1480 shares are currently held short.

However OGE Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of OGE Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable OGE Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case OGE Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 OGE Energy shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0108% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable OGE Energy shares, roughly 11 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 OGE Energy.

OGE Energy's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like OGE Energy.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

OGE Energy's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 41.82

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and OGE Energy's overall score of 41.82 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 86th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like OGE Energy is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

OGE Energy's environmental score

Environmental score: 24.62/100

OGE Energy's environmental score of 24.62 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that OGE Energy is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

OGE Energy's social score

Social score: 10.27/100

OGE Energy's social score of 10.27 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that OGE Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

OGE Energy's governance score

Governance score: 5.93/100

OGE Energy's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that OGE Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

OGE Energy's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, OGE Energy scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that OGE Energy has managed to keep its nose clean.

Total ESG score 41.82
Total ESG percentile 86.4
Environmental score 24.62

OGE Energy share dividends

81%

Dividend payout ratio: 80.61% of net profits

Recently OGE Energy has paid out, on average, around 80.61% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), OGE Energy shareholders could enjoy a 5.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In OGE Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $1.61 per share.

OGE Energy'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.

OGE Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 29 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have OGE Energy's shares ever split?

OGE Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 July 2013. 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 OGE Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for OGE Energy shares which in turn could have impacted OGE Energy's share price.

OGE Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, OGE Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $21.8676 up to $44.1344. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OGE.US volatility(beta: 0.66)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 OGE Energy's is 0.656. This would suggest that OGE Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
