Is EMCOR Group under- or over-valued?

Valuing EMCOR Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EMCOR Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

EMCOR Group's P/E ratio

EMCOR Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, EMCOR Group shares trade at around 20x 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.

EMCOR Group's PEG ratio

EMCOR Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.32. 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 EMCOR Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


EMCOR Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $638.5 million.

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

Shorting EMCOR Group shares

There are currently 1.0 million EMCOR Group shares held short by investors – that's known as EMCOR Group's "short interest". This figure is 17.7% up from 860,520 last month.

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

EMCOR Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

EMCOR Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EMCOR Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EMCOR Group shares traded daily (recently around 204555.55555556). EMCOR Group's SIR currently stands at 4.95. In other words for every 100,000 EMCOR Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4950 shares are currently held short.

However EMCOR Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EMCOR Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable EMCOR Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EMCOR Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EMCOR Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0191% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EMCOR Group shares, roughly 19 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 EMCOR Group.

EMCOR Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 7.99% of net profits

Recently EMCOR Group has paid out, on average, around 7.99% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.45% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EMCOR Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.45% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EMCOR Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.47 per share.

While EMCOR Group's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that EMCOR Group is investing more in its future growth.

EMCOR Group's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have EMCOR Group's shares ever split?

EMCOR Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 July 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 EMCOR Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for EMCOR Group shares which in turn could have impacted EMCOR Group's share price.

EMCOR Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, EMCOR Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $63.4689 up to $129.312. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EME.US volatility(beta: 1.22)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while EMCOR Group's is 1.2167. This would suggest that EMCOR Group's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
