Is Public Service Enterprise Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Public Service Enterprise Group's P/E ratio

Public Service Enterprise Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Public Service Enterprise Group shares trade at around 21x 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.

Public Service Enterprise Group's PEG ratio

Public Service Enterprise Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5954. 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 Public Service Enterprise Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Public Service Enterprise Group's EBITDA

Public Service Enterprise Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.8 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Public Service Enterprise Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Public Service Enterprise Group share dividends

69%

Dividend payout ratio: 68.82% of net profits

Recently Public Service Enterprise Group has paid out, on average, around 68.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Public Service Enterprise Group shareholders could enjoy a 3.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Public Service Enterprise Group's case, that would currently equate to about $2.31 per share.

Public Service Enterprise Group'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.

Public Service Enterprise Group's most recent dividend payout was on 27 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Public Service Enterprise Group's shares ever split?

Public Service Enterprise Group's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 4 February 2008. 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 Public Service Enterprise Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Public Service Enterprise Group shares which in turn could have impacted Public Service Enterprise Group's share price.

Public Service Enterprise Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Public Service Enterprise Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $52.3083 up to $77.46. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PEG.US volatility(beta: 0.61)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 Public Service Enterprise Group's is 0.61. This would suggest that Public Service Enterprise Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
