Is Eversource Energy stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Eversource Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Eversource Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

Eversource Energy share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 63.25% of net profits
Recently Eversource Energy has paid out, on average, around 63.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eversource Energy shareholders could enjoy a 2.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eversource Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $2.375 per share.
Eversource Energy'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.

Have Eversource Energy's shares ever split?
Eversource Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 29 April 2013. 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 Eversource Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eversource Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Eversource Energy's share price.
Eversource Energy share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Eversource Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $75.0638 up to $91.46. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
