Is Avangrid under- or over-valued?

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

Avangrid's P/E ratio

Avangrid's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 27x. In other words, Avangrid shares trade at around 27x 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).

Avangrid's PEG ratio

Avangrid's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4595. 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 Avangrid's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Avangrid's EBITDA

Avangrid's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.8 billion.

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

Shorting Avangrid shares

There are currently 2.7 million Avangrid shares held short by investors – that's known as Avangrid's "short interest". This figure is 25.4% up from 2.1 million last month.

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

Avangrid's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Avangrid's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avangrid shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avangrid shares traded daily (recently around 513814.75095785). Avangrid's SIR currently stands at 5.22. In other words for every 100,000 Avangrid shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5220 shares are currently held short.

However Avangrid's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avangrid shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avangrid shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avangrid's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avangrid shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0471% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avangrid shares, roughly 47 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Avangrid.

Avangrid share dividends

87%

Dividend payout ratio: 87.13% of net profits

Recently Avangrid has paid out, on average, around 87.13% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.49% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Avangrid shareholders could enjoy a 3.49% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Avangrid's case, that would currently equate to about $1.76 per share.

Avangrid'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.

Avangrid's most recent dividend payout was on 30 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Avangrid share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Avangrid's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.3238 up to $55.1294. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Avangrid's is 0.2322. This would suggest that Avangrid's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
