Is Edison International under- or over-valued?

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

Edison International's P/E ratio

Edison International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, Edison International shares trade at around 33x 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.

Edison International's PEG ratio

Edison International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.8031. 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 Edison International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Edison International's EBITDA

Edison International'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 Edison International.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Edison International's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 26.88

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Edison International's overall score of 26.88 (as at 01/01/2019) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 53rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Edison International's environmental score

Environmental score: 12.22/100

Edison International's environmental score of 12.22 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Edison International is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Edison International's social score

Social score: 11.35/100

Edison International's social score of 11.35 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Edison International is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Edison International's governance score

Governance score: 3.8/100

Edison International's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Edison International is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Edison International's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

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

Edison International share dividends

58%

Dividend payout ratio: 58.3% of net profits

Recently Edison International has paid out, on average, around 58.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Edison International shareholders could enjoy a 4.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Edison International's case, that would currently equate to about $2.65 per share.

Edison International'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.

Edison International's most recent dividend payout was on 31 January 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Edison International's shares ever split?

Edison International's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 June 1993. 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 Edison International shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Edison International shares which in turn could have impacted Edison International's share price.

Edison International share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Edison International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $51.5742 up to $68.62. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EIX.US volatility(beta: 0.69)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Edison International's is 0.6883. This would suggest that Edison International's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
