Is Entergy Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Entergy Corporation's P/E ratio

Entergy Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Entergy Corporation shares trade at around 18x 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.

Entergy Corporation's PEG ratio

Entergy Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.568. 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 Entergy Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Entergy Corporation's EBITDA

Entergy Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.6 billion.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Entergy Corporation 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.).

Entergy Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 19.89/100

Entergy Corporation's social score

Social score: 19.6/100

Entergy Corporation's social score of 19.6 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Entergy Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Entergy Corporation share dividends

64%

Dividend payout ratio: 64.03% of net profits

Recently Entergy Corporation has paid out, on average, around 64.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Entergy Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Entergy Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $3.98 per share.

Entergy Corporation'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.

Entergy Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 August 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Entergy Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Entergy Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $95.0107 up to $124.6645. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ETR.US volatility(beta: 0.57)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 Entergy Corporation's is 0.5689. This would suggest that Entergy Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
