Is Duke Energy Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Duke Energy Corporation's P/E ratio

Duke Energy 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 23x. In other words, Duke Energy Corporation shares trade at around 23x 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.

Duke Energy Corporation's PEG ratio

Duke Energy Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.6167. 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 Duke Energy 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.

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

Duke Energy Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 15.6/100

Duke Energy Corporation's environmental score of 15.6 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Duke Energy Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Duke Energy Corporation's social score

Social score: 13.72/100

Duke Energy Corporation's social score of 13.72 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Duke Energy Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

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

Duke Energy Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 74.76% of net profits

Recently Duke Energy Corporation has paid out, on average, around 74.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.59% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Duke Energy Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.59% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Duke Energy Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $3.92 per share.

Duke Energy 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.

Duke Energy Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 16 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Duke Energy Corporation's shares ever split?

Duke Energy Corporation's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 3 July 2012. 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 Duke Energy Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Duke Energy Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Duke Energy Corporation's share price.

Duke Energy Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Duke Energy Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $93.8515 up to $115.2875. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
