Is DTE Energy Company under- or over-valued?

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 25x. In other words, DTE Energy Company shares trade at around 25x 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.

DTE Energy Company share dividends

54%

Dividend payout ratio: 53.52% of net profits

Recently DTE Energy Company has paid out, on average, around 53.52% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.16% 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 3.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In DTE Energy Company's case, that would currently equate to about $4.08 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 1175:1000 basis on 30 June 2021. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1175 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your DTE Energy Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 14.9% 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
