Is it a good time to buy Enbridge stock?

It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Enbridge under- or over-valued?

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

Enbridge's P/E ratio

Enbridge's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Enbridge shares trade at around 32x recent earnings.

Enbridge's PEG ratio

Enbridge's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.2. 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 Enbridge's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Enbridge's EBITDA

Enbridge's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is CADC$11.8 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Enbridge's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

How to short and sell Enbridge shares

  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "ENB.TO"

There are currently 73.5 million Enbridge shares held short by investors – that's known as Enbridge's "short interest". This figure is 3.2% down from 75.9 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Enbridge shares can be evaluated.

Enbridge's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Enbridge's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Enbridge shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Enbridge shares traded daily (recently around 4.8 million). Enbridge's SIR currently stands at 15.16. In other words for every 100,000 Enbridge shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15160 shares are currently held short.

However Enbridge's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Enbridge shares, or, against the total number of tradable Enbridge shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Enbridge's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Enbridge shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0363% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Enbridge shares, roughly 36 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Enbridge.

Enbridge'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 Enbridge.

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

Enbridge's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 31.21

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Enbridge's overall score of 31.21 (as at 12/31/2018) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 43rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Enbridge's environmental score

Environmental score: 13.59/100

Enbridge's environmental score of 13.59 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Enbridge is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Enbridge's social score

Social score: 14.25/100

Enbridge's social score of 14.25 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Enbridge 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. Enbridge scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Enbridge hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

Enbridge share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.34% of net profits

Recently Enbridge has paid out, on average, around 1.34% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Enbridge shareholders could enjoy a 7.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Enbridge's case, that would currently equate to about C$3.24 per share.

While Enbridge's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Enbridge is investing more in its future growth.

Enbridge's most recent dividend payout was on 28 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 10 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Enbridge's shares ever split?

Enbridge's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 May 2011. 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 Enbridge shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Enbridge shares which in turn could have impacted Enbridge's share price.

Enbridge share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Enbridge's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$34.4331 up to C$46.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ENB.TO volatility(beta: 0.93)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (TO average) beta is 1, while Enbridge's is 0.93. This would suggest that Enbridge's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
