Dorchester Minerals LP (NASDAQ: DMLP)

Dorchester Minerals LP (NASDAQ: DMLP) is a $580.54 million company today with a one-year return of -2.85%. Let’s look at its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, its enterprise-value-to-free-cash-flow (EV/CF) ratio, and its debt-to-equity ratio to gauge whether or not it’s a good investment.

The company's P/E ratio of 10.02 is 35.26% higher than the industry average of 7.408. That’s not good. A company’s P/E ratio shows its price as a multiple of its earnings per share (EPS). A relatively high P/E ratio is generally an indicator that a company is overvalued.

Dorchester Minerals LP's enterprise-value-to-free-cash-flow (EV/FCF) ratio of 7.898 is 68.10% lower than its industry average of 24.76. That’s good.

A company’s EV/FCF ratio measures its enterprise value (market cap adjusted for cash holdings and debt) against its free cash flow (how much money the company has after all of its cash outflows). A low EV/FCF ratio indicates that a company is performing efficiently, managing its debt well, and maintaining a strong cash position.

The debt-to-equity (D/E) ratio of Dorchester Minerals LP has increased over the last year. That's not good.

A company’s D/E ratio equals its total liabilities divided by its shareholder equity. It’s a measure of a company’s financial leverage. A declining D/E ratio indicates that a company is decreasing its debt burden over time, while a rising ratio indicates that a company is taking on more debt over time.
