Is MGE Energy stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing MGE Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of MGE Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
MGE Energy's P/E ratio
MGE Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, MGE Energy shares trade at around 26x 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.
MGE Energy's EBITDA
MGE Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $216.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a MGE Energy's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

MGE Energy share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 54.51% of net profits
Recently MGE Energy has paid out, on average, around 54.51% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.21% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), MGE Energy shareholders could enjoy a 2.21% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In MGE Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $1.55 per share.
MGE 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.
MGE Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 14 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have MGE Energy's shares ever split?
MGE Energy's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 9 February 2014. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your MGE Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for MGE Energy shares which in turn could have impacted MGE Energy's share price.
MGE Energy share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, MGE Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $68.4251 up to $85.8193. 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 MGE Energy's is 0.6356. This would suggest that MGE Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
