Is Emerson Electric stock undervalued or overvalued?

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 P/E ratio

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 26x. In other words, Emerson Electric shares trade at around 26x 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 PEG ratio

Emerson Electric's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.8934. 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.

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.).

Emerson Electric's environmental score

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.

Emerson Electric's social score

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.

Emerson Electric share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 49.51% of net profits

Recently Emerson Electric has paid out, on average, around 49.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.12% 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 2.12% 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.

While Emerson Electric's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Emerson Electric may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Emerson Electric's most recent dividend payout was on 9 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Emerson Electric's shares ever split?

Emerson Electric's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 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.

Emerson Electric share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Emerson Electric's shares have ranged in value from as little as $76.6616 up to $105.4302. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EMR.US volatility(beta: 1.51)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 Emerson Electric's is 1.5144. 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).
