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

That's relatively low compared to, say, the P/E ratio for the ASX over the 12 months to December 2019 (32.14). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Beach Energy share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 9.12% of net profits
Recently Beach Energy has paid out, on average, around 9.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Beach Energy shareholders could enjoy a 1.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Beach Energy's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.02 per share.
While Beach Energy's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Beach Energy is investing more in its future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Beach Energy's shares ever split?
Beach Energy's shares were split on a 1:7 basis on 26 May 2002. So if you had owned 7 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Beach Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Beach Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Beach Energy's share price.
Beach Energy share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Beach Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.92 up to $2.91. 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 (AU average) beta is 1, while Beach Energy's is 2.4886. This would suggest that Beach Energy's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
