Is Atmos Energy Corporation stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Atmos Energy Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Atmos Energy Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Atmos Energy Corporation's P/E ratio

Atmos Energy 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 19x. In other words, Atmos Energy Corporation shares trade at around 19x 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.

Atmos Energy Corporation's PEG ratio

Atmos Energy Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.7415. 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 Atmos Energy 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.

Atmos Energy Corporation's EBITDA

Atmos Energy Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.9 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Atmos Energy Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Atmos Energy Corporation share dividends

47%

Dividend payout ratio: 47.3% of net profits

Recently Atmos Energy Corporation has paid out, on average, around 47.3% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.62% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Atmos Energy Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Atmos Energy Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $3.09 per share.

While Atmos Energy Corporation's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Atmos Energy Corporation may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Atmos Energy Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 9 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Atmos Energy Corporation's shares ever split?

Atmos Energy Corporation's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 16 May 1994. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Atmos Energy Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Atmos Energy Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Atmos Energy Corporation's share price.

Atmos Energy Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Atmos Energy Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $98.8707 up to $125.38. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ATO.US volatility(beta: 0.67)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Atmos Energy Corporation's is 0.665. This would suggest that Atmos Energy Corporation's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
