Is Eversource Energy under- or over-valued?
Valuing Eversource Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Eversource Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Eversource Energy's P/E ratio
Eversource Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Eversource Energy shares trade at around 25x 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.
Eversource Energy's PEG ratio
Eversource Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2578. 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 Eversource Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Eversource Energy'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 Eversource Energy.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Eversource Energy's total ESG risk score

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Eversource Energy's overall score of 25.47 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 35th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Eversource Energy 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.).
Eversource Energy's environmental score
Environmental score: 12.61/100
Eversource Energy's environmental score of 12.61 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Eversource Energy is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Eversource Energy's social score
Social score: 12.75/100
Eversource Energy's social score of 12.75 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Eversource Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Eversource Energy share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 63.25% of net profits
Recently Eversource Energy has paid out, on average, around 63.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Eversource Energy shareholders could enjoy a 2.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Eversource Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $2.375 per share.
Eversource Energy'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.
Eversource Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 31 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Eversource Energy's shares ever split?
Eversource Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 30 April 2013. 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 Eversource Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Eversource Energy shares which in turn could have impacted Eversource Energy's share price.
Eversource Energy share price volatility

If you had bought $1,000 worth of Eversource Energy stocks at the start of February 2020, those stocks would have been worth $673.33 at the bottom of the March crash, and if you held on to them, then as of the last market close they'd be worth $939.18.
