Is Nextera Energy under- or over-valued?

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

Nextera Energy's P/E ratio

Nextera Energy's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Nextera Energy shares trade at around 16x 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.

Nextera Energy's PEG ratio

Nextera Energy's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2029. 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 Nextera Energy's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Nextera Energy's EBITDA

Nextera Energy's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$15.1 billion (£12 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Nextera Energy's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Nextera Energy share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Nextera Energy's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$46.7649 up to US$86.1793. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NEE.US volatility(beta: 0.51)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Nextera Energy's is 0.513. This would suggest that Nextera Energy's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

Nextera Energy share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 58.99% of net profits

Recently Nextera Energy has paid out, on average, around 58.99% 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), Nextera Energy shareholders could enjoy a 3.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Nextera Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $1.828 per share.

Nextera Energy'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.

Nextera Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 15 December 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 November 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
