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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Middlesex Water Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Middlesex Water Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 48.41% of net profits
Recently Middlesex Water Company has paid out, on average, around 48.41% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.28% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Middlesex Water Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.28% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Middlesex Water Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.125 per share.
While Middlesex Water Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Middlesex Water Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Middlesex Water Company's most recent dividend payout was on 31 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Middlesex Water Company's shares were split on a 4:3 basis on 16 November 2003. So if you had owned 3 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Middlesex Water Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 25% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Middlesex Water Company shares which in turn could have impacted Middlesex Water Company's share price.
