Valuing Emerson Electric stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Emerson Electric's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Emerson Electric'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, Emerson Electric 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.
Emerson Electric's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8183. 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 Emerson Electric's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Emerson Electric's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$3.6 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Emerson Electric's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 8.8 million Emerson Electric shares held short by investors – that's known as Emerson Electric's "short interest". This figure is 12.4% down from 10.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Emerson Electric shares can be evaluated.
Emerson Electric's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Emerson Electric shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Emerson Electric shares traded daily (recently around 2.9 million). Emerson Electric's SIR currently stands at 2.99. In other words for every 100,000 Emerson Electric shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2990 shares are currently held short.
However Emerson Electric's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Emerson Electric shares, or, against the total number of tradable Emerson Electric shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Emerson Electric's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Emerson Electric shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0147% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Emerson Electric shares, roughly 15 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 Emerson Electric.

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 Emerson Electric.
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: 36.82
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Emerson Electric's overall score of 36.82 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 65th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Emerson Electric 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: 13.55/100
Emerson Electric's environmental score of 13.55 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Emerson Electric is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 17.67/100
Emerson Electric's social score of 17.67 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Emerson Electric is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 14.11/100
Emerson Electric's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Emerson Electric 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. Emerson Electric scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Emerson Electric has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||36.82|
|Total ESG percentile||64.96|
|Environmental score percentile||7|
|Social score percentile||7|
|Governance score percentile||7|
|Level of controversy||2|
Dividend payout ratio: 57.95% of net profits
Recently Emerson Electric has paid out, on average, around 57.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Emerson Electric shareholders could enjoy a 2.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Emerson Electric's case, that would currently equate to about $2.02 per share.
Emerson Electric'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.
Emerson Electric's most recent dividend payout was on 10 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Emerson Electric's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 December 2006. 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 Emerson Electric shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Emerson Electric shares which in turn could have impacted Emerson Electric's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Emerson Electric's shares have ranged in value from as little as $36.8838 up to $83.14. 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 Emerson Electric's is 1.547. This would suggest that Emerson Electric's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
