Is Exelon Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Exelon Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 57.09% of net profits
Recently Exelon Corporation has paid out, on average, around 57.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Exelon Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Exelon Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.53 per share.
Exelon 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.
Exelon Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 9 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Exelon Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Exelon Corporation's share price.
