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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 123x. In other words, Dominion Energy shares trade at around 123x 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.
Dominion Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 9.0415. 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.
Dominion Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$8.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Dominion Energy's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 10.5 million Dominion Energy shares held short by investors – that's known as Dominion Energy's "short interest". This figure is 26.6% down from 14.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Dominion Energy shares can be evaluated.
Dominion Energy's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Dominion Energy shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Dominion Energy shares traded daily (recently around 3.1 million). Dominion Energy's SIR currently stands at 3.36. In other words for every 100,000 Dominion Energy shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3360 shares are currently held short.
However Dominion Energy's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Dominion Energy shares, or, against the total number of tradable Dominion Energy shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Dominion Energy's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Dominion Energy shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0125% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Dominion Energy shares, roughly 13 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 Dominion Energy.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Dominion Energy.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 35.71
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Dominion Energy's overall score of 35.71 (as at 08/01/2020) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 69th 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.).
Environmental score: 18.42/100
Dominion Energy's environmental score of 18.42 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Dominion Energy is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 11.05/100
Dominion Energy's social score of 11.05 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Dominion Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 7.73/100
Dominion Energy's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Dominion Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Dominion Energy scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Dominion Energy has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||35.71|

|Governance score percentile||3|
|Level of controversy||2|
Dividend payout ratio: 571.54% of net profits
Recently Dominion Energy has paid out, on average, around 571.54% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.71% 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 4.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dominion Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $3.76 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 20 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 3 September 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Dominion Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 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.
Over the last 12 months, Dominion Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $62.0201 up to $90.89. 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 0.3768. This would suggest that Dominion Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
