Is Dominion Energy stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Dominion Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Dominion Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Dominion Energy's P/E ratio
Dominion 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 35x. In other words, Dominion Energy shares trade at around 35x recent earnings.
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.
Dominion Energy's PEG ratio
Dominion Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.3105. 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 Dominion Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Dominion Energy's EBITDA
Dominion Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $8.4 billion.

Dominion Energy'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 Dominion Energy.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Dominion Energy's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 34.73
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Dominion Energy's overall score of 34.73 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 68th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Dominion Energy 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.).
Dominion Energy's environmental score
Environmental score: 18.42/100
Dominion Energy's environmental score of 18.42 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Dominion Energy is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Dominion Energy's social score
Social score: 11.05/100
Dominion Energy's social score of 11.05 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Dominion Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Dominion Energy's governance score
Governance score: 6.75/100
Dominion Energy's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Dominion Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Dominion Energy's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Dominion Energy scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Dominion Energy has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Dominion Energy share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 67.94% of net profits
Recently Dominion Energy has paid out, on average, around 67.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dominion Energy shareholders could enjoy a 5.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dominion Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $2.67 per share.
Dominion 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.
Dominion Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 20 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Dominion Energy's shares ever split?
Dominion Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 November 2007. 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 Dominion Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dominion Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Dominion Energy's share price.
Dominion Energy share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Dominion Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $48.48 up to $82.4991. 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 Dominion Energy's is 0.4507. This would suggest that Dominion Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
