Is it a good time to buy Emerson Electric Co stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. This is not a recommendation, however. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Emerson Electric Co under- or over-valued?

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

Emerson Electric Co's P/E ratio

Emerson Electric Co's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Emerson Electric Co shares trade at around 26x 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.

Emerson Electric Co's PEG ratio

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.

Emerson Electric Co's EBITDA

Emerson Electric Co's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $3.6 billion.

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

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)

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.

Emerson Electric Co's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Emerson Electric Co.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Emerson Electric Co's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 36.82

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Emerson Electric Co's overall score of 36.82 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 65th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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.).

Emerson Electric Co's environmental score

Environmental score: 13.55/100

Emerson Electric Co's environmental score of 13.55 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Emerson Electric Co is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Emerson Electric Co's social score

Social score: 17.67/100

Emerson Electric Co's social score of 17.67 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Emerson Electric Co is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Emerson Electric Co's governance score

Governance score: 14.11/100

Emerson Electric Co's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Emerson Electric Co is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Emerson Electric Co's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. A high-profile company, Emerson Electric Co scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Emerson Electric Co has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Total ESG percentile 64.96

Emerson Electric Co share dividends

58%

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").

Have Emerson Electric Co's shares ever split?

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.

Emerson Electric Co share price volatility

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".

EMR.US volatility(beta: 1.54)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 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).
