Is New Jersey Resources Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into New Jersey Resources 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.

New Jersey Resources Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 64.65% of net profits

Recently New Jersey Resources Corporation has paid out, on average, around 64.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.7% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), New Jersey Resources Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.7% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In New Jersey Resources Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.36 per share.

New Jersey Resources 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.

New Jersey Resources Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 2 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have New Jersey Resources Corporation's shares ever split?

New Jersey Resources Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 March 2015. 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 New Jersey Resources Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for New Jersey Resources Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted New Jersey Resources Corporation's share price.
