Is Energy Transfer under- or over-valued?

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

Energy Transfer's P/E ratio

Energy Transfer's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Energy Transfer shares trade at around 5x 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's PEG ratio

Energy Transfer's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.1272. 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'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's EBITDA

Energy Transfer's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $12.3 billion.

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

Energy Transfer'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.

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

Energy Transfer'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'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 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's environmental score

Environmental score: 1/100

Energy Transfer'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 is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Energy Transfer's social score

Social score: 1/100

Energy Transfer'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 is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Energy Transfer's governance score

Governance score: 1/100

Energy Transfer's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Energy Transfer is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Energy Transfer's controversy score

Controversy score: 5/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Energy Transfer scored a 5 out of 5 for controversy – the lowest score possible, reflecting that Energy Transfer's public profile has been damaged by multiple incidents.

Energy Transfer share dividends

34%

Dividend payout ratio: 33.89% of net profits

Recently Energy Transfer has paid out, on average, around 33.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 6.36% 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 shareholders could enjoy a 6.36% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Energy Transfer's case, that would currently equate to about $0.61 per share.

While Energy Transfer's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Energy Transfer may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Energy Transfer's most recent dividend payout was on 19 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Energy Transfer's shares ever split?

Energy Transfer'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 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Energy Transfer shares which in turn could have impacted Energy Transfer's share price.

Energy Transfer share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Energy Transfer's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.8127 up to $11.181. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ET.US volatility(beta: 2.26)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 Energy Transfer's is 2.2646. This would suggest that Energy Transfer's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
