Is Consolidated Edison stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Consolidated Edison stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Consolidated Edison's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Consolidated Edison's P/E ratio
Consolidated Edison's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Consolidated Edison shares trade at around 21x 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.
Consolidated Edison's PEG ratio
Consolidated Edison's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.1062. 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 Consolidated Edison's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Consolidated Edison share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 70.98% of net profits
Recently Consolidated Edison has paid out, on average, around 70.98% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.58% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Consolidated Edison shareholders could enjoy a 3.58% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Consolidated Edison's case, that would currently equate to about $3.115 per share.
Consolidated Edison'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.
Consolidated Edison's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Consolidated Edison's shares ever split?
Consolidated Edison's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 2 July 1989. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Consolidated Edison shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Consolidated Edison shares which in turn could have impacted Consolidated Edison's share price.
Consolidated Edison share price volatility
