Is Emerson Electric Company stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Emerson Electric Company's P/E ratio

Emerson Electric Company's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, Emerson Electric Company shares trade at around 34x 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.

Emerson Electric Company's PEG ratio

Emerson Electric Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.3041. 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 Emerson Electric Company's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Emerson Electric Company's EBITDA

Emerson Electric Company's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.7 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Emerson Electric Company's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Emerson Electric Company share dividends

41%

Dividend payout ratio: 40.6% of net profits

Recently Emerson Electric Company has paid out, on average, around 40.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Emerson Electric Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Emerson Electric Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.09 per share.

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

Emerson Electric Company's most recent dividend payout was on 9 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Emerson Electric Company's shares ever split?

Emerson Electric Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 December 2006. 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 Emerson Electric Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Emerson Electric Company shares which in turn could have impacted Emerson Electric Company's share price.

Emerson Electric Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Emerson Electric Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $81.8223 up to $116.2262. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EMR.US volatility(beta: 1.32)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 Emerson Electric Company's is 1.316. This would suggest that Emerson Electric Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
