Is Energy Transfer Equity stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Energy Transfer Equity stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Energy Transfer Equity's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Energy Transfer Equity's P/E ratio
Energy Transfer Equity's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Energy Transfer Equity shares trade at around 9x 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.
Energy Transfer Equity's PEG ratio
Energy Transfer Equity's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1482. 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 Energy Transfer Equity's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Energy Transfer Equity'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 Energy Transfer Equity.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Energy Transfer Equity's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 48.6
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Energy Transfer Equity's overall score of 48.6 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 95th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Energy Transfer Equity 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.).
Energy Transfer Equity's environmental score
Environmental score: 1/100
Energy Transfer Equity's environmental score of 1 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Energy Transfer Equity is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Energy Transfer Equity's social score
Social score: 1/100
Energy Transfer Equity's social score of 1 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Energy Transfer Equity is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Energy Transfer Equity's governance score
Governance score: 1/100
Energy Transfer Equity's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Energy Transfer Equity is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Energy Transfer Equity's controversy score
Controversy score: 5/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Energy Transfer Equity scored a 5 out of 5 for controversy – the lowest score possible, reflecting that Energy Transfer Equity's public profile has been damaged by multiple incidents.
Energy Transfer Equity share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 82.65% of net profits
Recently Energy Transfer Equity has paid out, on average, around 82.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 9.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Energy Transfer Equity shareholders could enjoy a 9.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Energy Transfer Equity's case, that would currently equate to about $1.107 per share.
Energy Transfer Equity'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.
Energy Transfer Equity's most recent dividend payout was on 22 May 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Energy Transfer Equity's shares ever split?
Energy Transfer Equity's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 July 2015. 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 Energy Transfer Equity shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Energy Transfer Equity shares which in turn could have impacted Energy Transfer Equity's share price.
Energy Transfer Equity share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Energy Transfer Equity's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.3582 up to $13.0303. 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 Energy Transfer Equity's is 1.716. This would suggest that Energy Transfer Equity's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
