As per my research, I recommend a sell rating for Exelon Corporation (EXC). At today's price of $42.63, the utility stock looks to be 5% overvalued from its estimated intrinsic value of $40.15. The key concerns are:

  • Since the business is split off and a new business is established separately is this one of the reasons.
  • EXC Over-Valued at $44.17
  • EXC Fair-Value Estimate: $40.15
  • EXC Under-Valued at $36.14

On the closure of Wednesday, December 21st, 2022, the price of Exelon Corporation stock increased by 1%, moving from $42.17 to $42.59. It has now gained four straight days. It will be interesting to see whether it can gain more over the next few days or if it decides to take a small break. The stock's price changed by 1.09% during the most recent trading day, moving from a day low of $42.20 to a day high of $42.66. The price has increased in six of the last ten days and over the last two weeks, it has increased by 0.72%. On the last day, volume decreased by -1 million shares, and 3 million shares were bought and sold for a total transaction value of roughly $134.07 million. You should be aware that divergence is caused by declining volume on higher prices and may serve as a major contributor to changes that could occur over the next few days.

EBITDA vs. Earnings Per Share

Essentially, it represents the amount of net income that was earned by a company's shareholders at the end of a time frame (quarterly or yearly).

Exelon Corporation Stock Forecast, Risk & Stop-loss

The stock's downside is supported by accumulated volume at $37.76 and $37.71, which are just below the current price. When a stock is testing a support level, there is a risk that it will break that level, which could cause the stock to fall to the next support level. Exelon Corporation finds support in this instance at $37.76, which is just below the current price. The next support levels from the volume that has built up are $37.71 and $36.96 if this is broken.

The risk is viewed as a medium for this stock due to its daily average movement and high trading volume. The stock moved $0.460, or 1.09%, between the high and low over the previous day. The stock's daily average volatility over the previous week was 1.89%.

$41.01 (-3.71%) is the stop-loss amount we advise. The risk associated with this stock's medium daily movements is medium. An earlier-than-five-day-old pivot top has generated a sell signal.


We conclude that the current level may present a buying opportunity as there is a reasonable chance that the stock of Exelon Corporation will perform well in the short term in light of several positive short-term signals and a generally positive trend. However, in the long-run selling is the better option as per our research.
