Is EOG Resources under- or over-valued?

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

EOG Resources's P/E ratio

EOG Resources's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, EOG Resources shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

EOG Resources's PEG ratio

EOG Resources's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.038. 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 EOG Resources's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

EOG Resources's EBITDA

Shorting EOG Resources shares

There are currently 10.3 million EOG Resources shares held short by investors – that's known as EOG Resources's "short interest". This figure is 3.4% up from 10.0 million last month.

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

EOG Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

EOG Resources's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EOG Resources shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EOG Resources shares traded daily (recently around 4.6 million). EOG Resources's SIR currently stands at 2.26. In other words for every 100,000 EOG Resources shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2260 shares are currently held short.

However EOG Resources's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EOG Resources shares, or, against the total number of tradable EOG Resources shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EOG Resources's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EOG Resources shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0201% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EOG Resources shares, roughly 20 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 EOG Resources.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like EOG Resources 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.).

EOG Resources's environmental score

EOG Resources share dividends

36%

Dividend payout ratio: 35.69% of net profits

Recently EOG Resources has paid out, on average, around 35.69% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EOG Resources shareholders could enjoy a 1.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EOG Resources's case, that would currently equate to about $1.575 per share.

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

EOG Resources's most recent dividend payout was on 28 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have EOG Resources's shares ever split?

EOG Resources's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 March 2014. 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 EOG Resources shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for EOG Resources shares which in turn could have impacted EOG Resources's share price.

EOG Resources share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, EOG Resources's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$30.5585 up to US$93.43. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EOG.US volatility(beta: 2.01)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 EOG Resources's is 2.0074. This would suggest that EOG Resources's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
