Valuing Tullow Oil stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Tullow Oil's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Tullow Oil's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, Tullow Oil shares trade at around 6x 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, Tullow Oil'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.
Tullow Oil's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is £848.6 million.

Dividend payout ratio: 52.31% of net profits
Recently Tullow Oil has paid out, on average, around 52.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 23.09% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Tullow Oil shareholders could enjoy a 23.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Tullow Oil's case, that would currently equate to about 0.04p per share.
Tullow Oil'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.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 August 2019 (the "ex-dividend date").
Tullow Oil's dividend payout ratio is perhaps best considered in relation to those of similar companies.
Tullow Oil's shares were split on a 100:1 basis on 1 June 1993. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 100 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 99% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tullow Oil shares which in turn could have impacted Tullow Oil's share price.
