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 42x. In other words, Enbridge shares trade at around 42x 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

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "ENB.TO"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".

There are currently 77.6 million Enbridge shares held short by investors – that's known as Enbridge's "short interest". This figure is 5.2% up from 73.8 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 8.8 million). Enbridge's SIR currently stands at 8.85. In other words for every 100,000 Enbridge shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8850 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 0.0384% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Enbridge shares, roughly 38 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet 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 01/01/2019) 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.

Enbridge's governance score

Governance score: 7.37/100

Enbridge's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Enbridge is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Enbridge's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

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.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) summary

Enbridge Inc was last rated for ESG on: 2019-01-01.

Total ESG score 31.21
Total ESG percentile 43.32
Environmental score 13.59
Environmental score percentile 7
Social score 14.25

Level of controversy 3

Enbridge share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 130.65% of net profits

Recently Enbridge has paid out, on average, around 130.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 8.18% 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 8.18% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Enbridge's case, that would currently equate to about C$3.34 per share.

Enbridge'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.

Enbridge's most recent dividend payout was on 1 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 February 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Enbridge's shares ever split?

Enbridge's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 20 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$31.2209 up to C$53.3638. 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 0.9285. This would suggest that Enbridge's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
