Is Energy Transfer stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Energy Transfer's P/E ratio

Energy Transfer's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Energy Transfer shares trade at around 15x 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.

Energy Transfer's PEG ratio

Energy Transfer's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5782. 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 Energy Transfer's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Energy Transfer's EBITDA

Energy Transfer's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $13.2 billion.

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

Energy Transfer share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 98.82% of net profits

Recently Energy Transfer has paid out, on average, around 98.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.85% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Energy Transfer shareholders could enjoy a 7.85% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Energy Transfer's case, that would currently equate to about $1.255 per share.

Energy Transfer'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.

Energy Transfer's most recent dividend payout was on 19 May 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Energy Transfer's shares ever split?

Energy Transfer's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 July 2015. 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 Energy Transfer shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Energy Transfer shares which in turn could have impacted Energy Transfer's share price.

Energy Transfer share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Energy Transfer's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.6332 up to $16.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ET.US volatility(beta: 1.65)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 Energy Transfer's is 1.651. This would suggest that Energy Transfer's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
