Is it a good time to buy Halliburton Company stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. 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 Halliburton Company under- or over-valued?

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

Halliburton Company's P/E ratio

Halliburton Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Halliburton Company shares trade at around 13x 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.

Halliburton Company's PEG ratio

Halliburton Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.9096. 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 Halliburton Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Halliburton Company's EBITDA

Halliburton Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$5.1 billion (£4.1 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Halliburton Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Halliburton Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Halliburton Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$27.3339 up to US$43.446. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HAL.US volatility(beta: 2.03)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 Halliburton Company's is 2.032. This would suggest that Halliburton Company's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.

Halliburton Company share dividends

21%

Dividend payout ratio: 20.7% of net profits

Recently Halliburton Company has paid out, on average, around 20.7% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.77% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Halliburton Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.77% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Halliburton Company's case, that would currently equate to about $0.64 per share.

While Halliburton Company's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Halliburton Company is investing more in its future growth.

Halliburton Company's most recent dividend payout was on 26 March 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 March 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").
