Is NextEra Energy under- or over-valued?
Valuing NextEra Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NextEra Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NextEra Energy's P/E ratio
NextEra 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 44x. In other words, NextEra Energy shares trade at around 44x 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.
NextEra Energy's PEG ratio
NextEra Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.7263. 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 NextEra 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.

NextEra 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 NextEra Energy.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
NextEra Energy's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 28.95
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and NextEra Energy's overall score of 28.95 (as at 12/31/2018) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 55th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like NextEra 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.).
NextEra Energy's environmental score
Environmental score: 15.14/100
NextEra Energy's environmental score of 15.14 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NextEra Energy is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
NextEra Energy's social score
Social score: 6.78/100
NextEra Energy's social score of 6.78 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NextEra Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
NextEra Energy's governance score
Governance score: 6.52/100
NextEra Energy's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that NextEra Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
NextEra Energy's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. NextEra Energy scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that NextEra Energy has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
NextEra Energy share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 60.87% of net profits
Recently NextEra Energy has paid out, on average, around 60.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NextEra Energy shareholders could enjoy a 1.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NextEra Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $1.505 per share.
NextEra 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.
NextEra Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 14 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have NextEra Energy's shares ever split?
NextEra Energy's shares were split on a 4:1 basis on 26 October 2020. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 4 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NextEra Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 75% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NextEra Energy shares which in turn could have impacted NextEra Energy's share price.
NextEra Energy share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, NextEra Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $67.3573 up to $93.73. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
