Is ONEOK under- or over-valued?

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

ONEOK's P/E ratio

ONEOK's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, ONEOK shares trade at around 16x 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.

ONEOK's PEG ratio

ONEOK's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6309. 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 ONEOK's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ONEOK's EBITDA

ONEOK's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$3.2 billion (£2.6 billion).

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

ONEOK'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 ONEOK.

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

ONEOK's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 20.59

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and ONEOK's overall score of 20.59 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 36th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

ONEOK's environmental score

Environmental score: 10.6/100

ONEOK's social score

Social score: 6.63/100

ONEOK's governance score

Governance score: 0.36/100

ONEOK's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

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

ONEOK share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 110.98% of net profits

Recently ONEOK has paid out, on average, around 110.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.73% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ONEOK shareholders could enjoy a 6.73% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ONEOK's case, that would currently equate to about $3.74 per share.

ONEOK'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.

ONEOK's most recent dividend payout was on 16 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ONEOK's shares ever split?

ONEOK's shares were split on a 11422:1000 basis on 3 February 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 11422 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ONEOK shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 91.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ONEOK shares which in turn could have impacted ONEOK's share price.

ONEOK share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ONEOK's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$46.4168 up to US$74.0211. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

OKE.US volatility(beta: 1.7)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while ONEOK's is 1.7024. This would suggest that ONEOK's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
