Valuing Exelon Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Exelon Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Exelon 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 14x. In other words, Exelon Corporation shares trade at around 14x 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.
Exelon Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 78.565. 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 Exelon 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.
Exelon Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$9.1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Exelon Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 8.7 million Exelon Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Exelon Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% down from 8.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Exelon Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Exelon Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Exelon Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Exelon Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 5.5 million). Exelon Corporation's SIR currently stands at 1.58. In other words for every 100,000 Exelon Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1580 shares are currently held short.
However Exelon Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Exelon Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Exelon Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Exelon Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Exelon Corporation shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.009% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Exelon Corporation shares, roughly 9 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 Exelon Corporation.

Dividend payout ratio: 47.63% of net profits
Recently Exelon Corporation has paid out, on average, around 47.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.83% 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 3.83% 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.
While Exelon Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Exelon Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Exelon Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 10 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Exelon Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 6 May 2004. 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 Exelon Corporation shares – just the quantity. 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.
Over the last 12 months, Exelon Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.28 up to $50.54. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Exelon Corporation's is 0.3944. This would suggest that Exelon Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
