Is Dominion Energy stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Dominion Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Dominion Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Dominion Energy's P/E ratio
Dominion Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Dominion Energy shares trade at around 25x 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.
Dominion Energy's PEG ratio
Dominion Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5974. 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 Dominion Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Dominion Energy's overall score of 34.73 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 68th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Dominion Energy 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.).
Dominion Energy's environmental score

Dominion Energy share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 66.84% of net profits
Recently Dominion Energy has paid out, on average, around 66.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.18% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dominion Energy shareholders could enjoy a 3.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dominion Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $2.52 per share.
Dominion Energy'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.
Dominion Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 19 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Dominion Energy's shares ever split?
Dominion Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 November 2007. 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 Dominion Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dominion Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Dominion Energy's share price.
Dominion Energy share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Dominion Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $65.8896 up to $80.72. 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 Dominion Energy's is 0.4415. This would suggest that Dominion Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
