Is Consolidated Edison under- or over-valued?

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 22x. In other words, Consolidated Edison shares trade at around 22x 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 3.4509. 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's EBITDA

Consolidated Edison's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.5 billion.

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

Shorting Consolidated Edison shares

There are currently 5.5 million Consolidated Edison shares held short by investors – that's known as Consolidated Edison's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% down from 5.7 million last month.

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

Consolidated Edison's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Consolidated Edison's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Consolidated Edison shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Consolidated Edison shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Consolidated Edison's SIR currently stands at 3.08. In other words for every 100,000 Consolidated Edison shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3080 shares are currently held short.

However Consolidated Edison's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Consolidated Edison shares, or, against the total number of tradable Consolidated Edison shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Consolidated Edison's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Consolidated Edison shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0157% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Consolidated Edison shares, roughly 16 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Consolidated Edison.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Consolidated Edison is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Consolidated Edison's environmental score

Consolidated Edison share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 73.57% of net profits

Recently Consolidated Edison has paid out, on average, around 73.57% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.25% 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 4.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Consolidated Edison's case, that would currently equate to about $3.09 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 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 August 2021 (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

Over the last 12 months, Consolidated Edison's shares have ranged in value from as little as $64.2717 up to $80.6255. 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 Consolidated Edison's is 0.1588. This would suggest that Consolidated Edison's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
