Is Exelon Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Exelon Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Exelon Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Exelon Corporation's P/E ratio
Exelon 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 33x. In other words, Exelon Corporation shares trade at around 33x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Exelon Corporation's PEG ratio
Exelon Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.0549. 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 Exelon 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.

Exelon 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 Exelon Corporation.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Exelon Corporation's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 27.65
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Exelon Corporation's overall score of 27.65 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 39th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Exelon 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.).
Exelon Corporation's environmental score
Environmental score: 12.25/100
Exelon Corporation's environmental score of 12.25 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Exelon Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Exelon Corporation's social score
Social score: 11.86/100
Exelon Corporation's social score of 11.86 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Exelon Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Exelon Corporation's governance score
Governance score: 11.03/100
Exelon Corporation's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Exelon Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Exelon Corporation's controversy score
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Exelon Corporation scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Exelon Corporation hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
Exelon Corporation share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 57.09% of net profits
Recently Exelon Corporation has paid out, on average, around 57.09% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Exelon Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Exelon Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $1.53 per share.
Exelon 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.
Exelon Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 10 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Exelon Corporation's shares ever split?
Exelon Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 6 May 2004. 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 Exelon Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Exelon Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Exelon Corporation's share price.
Exelon Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Exelon Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.0879 up to $58.01. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
