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.
Emerson Electric Co's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.9479. 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 Co's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 7.4 million Emerson Electric Co shares held short by investors – that's known as Emerson Electric Co's "short interest". This figure is 25.3% down from 9.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Emerson Electric Co shares can be evaluated.
Emerson Electric Co's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Emerson Electric Co shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Emerson Electric Co shares traded daily (recently around 2.9 million). Emerson Electric Co's SIR currently stands at 2.55. In other words for every 100,000 Emerson Electric Co shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2550 shares are currently held short.
However Emerson Electric Co's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Emerson Electric Co shares, or, against the total number of tradable Emerson Electric Co shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Emerson Electric Co's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Emerson Electric Co shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0124% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Emerson Electric Co shares, roughly 12 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Emerson Electric Co.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Emerson Electric Co 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.).
Environmental score: 13.55/100

Social score: 17.67/100

Dividend payout ratio: 57.95% of net profits
Recently Emerson Electric Co has paid out, on average, around 57.95% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.41% 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 Co shareholders could enjoy a 2.41% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Emerson Electric Co's case, that would currently equate to about $2.02 per share.
Emerson Electric Co'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.
Emerson Electric Co's most recent dividend payout was on 10 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Emerson Electric Co's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 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 Co shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Emerson Electric Co shares which in turn could have impacted Emerson Electric Co's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Emerson Electric Co's shares have ranged in value from as little as $36.8838 up to $85.39. 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 Emerson Electric Co's is 1.5425. This would suggest that Emerson Electric Co's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
