Is NRG Energy stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing NRG Energy stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NRG Energy's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
NRG Energy's PEG ratio
NRG Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5252. 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 NRG 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.

NRG 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 NRG Energy.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
NRG Energy's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 35.19
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and NRG Energy's overall score of 35.19 (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 NRG 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.).
NRG Energy's environmental score
Environmental score: 20.81/100
NRG Energy's social score
Social score: 10.12/100
NRG Energy's governance score

NRG Energy share dividends
We're not expecting NRG Energy to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have NRG Energy's shares ever split?
NRG Energy's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 June 2007. 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 NRG Energy shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NRG Energy shares which in turn could have impacted NRG Energy's share price.
NRG Energy share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, NRG Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.9149 up to $44.9689. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while NRG Energy's is 1.0165. This would suggest that NRG Energy's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
