Is Emerson Electric under- or over-valued?
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 28x. In other words, Emerson Electric shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
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 2.5303. 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.

Shorting Emerson Electric shares
There are currently 7.2 million Emerson Electric shares held short by investors – that's known as Emerson Electric's "short interest". This figure is 16.3% down from 8.6 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)
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 2.5 million). Emerson Electric's SIR currently stands at 2.85. In other words for every 100,000 Emerson Electric shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2850 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 0.0121% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Emerson Electric shares, roughly 12 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.

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

Emerson Electric share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 54.46% of net profits
Recently Emerson Electric has paid out, on average, around 54.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.05% 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 2.05% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Emerson Electric's case, that would currently equate to about $2.01 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 9 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 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 $59.8979 up to $100.21. 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 1.5446. 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).
