Fundamental analysis indicates the various factors driving the valuation. The energy sector is at the strongest point of the decade. Energy prices could still be expected to rise further. For Enerplus Corporation, the gains are also about strong financial performance.
The company’s ROE is at 45.12%. The ROA is 13.13%. Last year’s EPS was $0.92. The EPS is expected to grow with the increase in energy prices. Enerplus is trading at a forward PE of 17.83. The average PE in the industry is 6.55.
The only challenge with Enerplus Corporation is the PE. With the PE at 17.83, the stock could be overvalued. That is despite the strong growth in the oil and gas sector. The stock is likely to retract from the current level.
