Is DTE Energy Company under- or over-valued?

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

DTE Energy Company's P/E ratio

DTE Energy 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 19x. In other words, DTE Energy Company shares trade at around 19x 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.

DTE Energy Company's PEG ratio

DTE Energy Company's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.9513. 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 DTE Energy 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.

Shorting DTE Energy Company shares

There are currently 1.9 million DTE Energy Company shares held short by investors – that's known as DTE Energy Company's "short interest". This figure is 12% down from 2.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting DTE Energy Company shares can be evaluated.

DTE Energy Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

DTE Energy Company's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of DTE Energy Company shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of DTE Energy Company shares traded daily (recently around 962445.40816327). DTE Energy Company's SIR currently stands at 1.96. In other words for every 100,000 DTE Energy Company shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1960 shares are currently held short.

However DTE Energy Company's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of DTE Energy Company shares, or, against the total number of tradable DTE Energy Company shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case DTE Energy Company's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 DTE Energy Company shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0126% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable DTE Energy Company shares, roughly 13 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 DTE Energy Company.

DTE Energy Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 54.45% of net profits

Recently DTE Energy Company has paid out, on average, around 54.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.12% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), DTE Energy Company shareholders could enjoy a 3.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In DTE Energy Company's case, that would currently equate to about $4.197 per share.

DTE Energy Company'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.

Have DTE Energy Company's shares ever split?

DTE Energy Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 January 1963. 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 DTE Energy Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for DTE Energy Company shares which in turn could have impacted DTE Energy Company's share price.

DTE Energy Company share price volatility
