Is Edison International stock undervalued or overvalued?

Edison International's P/E ratio

Edison International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, Edison International shares trade at around 14x 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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Edison International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Edison International share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 58.3% of net profits

Recently Edison International has paid out, on average, around 58.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Edison International shareholders could enjoy a 4.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Edison International's case, that would currently equate to about $2.65 per share.

Edison International'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.

Edison International's most recent dividend payout was on 30 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Edison International's shares ever split?

Edison International's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 June 1993. 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 Edison International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Edison International shares which in turn could have impacted Edison International's share price.

Edison International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Edison International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $51.5742 up to $68.62. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EIX.US volatility(beta: 0.69)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
