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 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.

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.
