Is Entergy Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Entergy Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Entergy Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Entergy Corporation's P/E ratio
Entergy Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Entergy Corporation shares trade at around 21x 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.
Entergy Corporation's PEG ratio
Entergy Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.9251. 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 Entergy Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Entergy Corporation'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 Entergy Corporation.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Entergy Corporation's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 40.97
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Entergy Corporation's overall score of 40.97 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 83rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Entergy Corporation 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.).
Entergy Corporation's environmental score
Environmental score: 19.89/100
Entergy Corporation's environmental score of 19.89 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Entergy Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Entergy Corporation's social score
Social score: 19.6/100
Entergy Corporation's social score of 19.6 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Entergy Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Entergy Corporation's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Entergy Corporation scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Entergy Corporation has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Entergy Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 67.8% of net profits
Recently Entergy Corporation has paid out, on average, around 67.8% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Entergy Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 3.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Entergy Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $3.92 per share.
Entergy Corporation'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.
Entergy Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 1 June 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 4 May 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
