Is FirstEnergy Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

FirstEnergy Corporation's P/E ratio

FirstEnergy 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 17x. In other words, FirstEnergy Corporation shares trade at around 17x 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.

FirstEnergy Corporation's PEG ratio

FirstEnergy Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.959. 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 FirstEnergy 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.

FirstEnergy Corporation's EBITDA

FirstEnergy Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.7 billion.

FirstEnergy Corporation's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like FirstEnergy Corporation.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

FirstEnergy Corporation's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 41.25

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and FirstEnergy Corporation's overall score of 41.25 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 86th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

FirstEnergy Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 19.37/100

FirstEnergy Corporation's environmental score of 19.37 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that FirstEnergy Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

FirstEnergy Corporation's social score

Social score: 16.32/100

FirstEnergy Corporation's social score of 16.32 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that FirstEnergy Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

FirstEnergy Corporation's governance score

Governance score: 10.56/100

FirstEnergy Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that FirstEnergy Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

FirstEnergy Corporation's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. FirstEnergy Corporation scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that FirstEnergy Corporation hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

FirstEnergy Corporation share dividends

61%

Dividend payout ratio: 61.18% of net profits

Recently FirstEnergy Corporation has paid out, on average, around 61.18% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.34% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), FirstEnergy Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 4.34% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In FirstEnergy Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.56 per share.

FirstEnergy 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.

FirstEnergy Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 31 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have FirstEnergy Corporation's shares ever split?

FirstEnergy Corporation's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 3 April 2003. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your FirstEnergy Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for FirstEnergy Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted FirstEnergy Corporation's share price.

FirstEnergy Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, FirstEnergy Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $34.4387 up to $48.4136. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while FirstEnergy Corporation's is 0.368. This would suggest that FirstEnergy Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
