Is Aqua America stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Aqua America's P/E ratio

Aqua America's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 61x. In other words, Aqua America shares trade at around 61x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
