Is EVERTEC under- or over-valued?
Valuing EVERTEC stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of EVERTEC's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
EVERTEC's P/E ratio
EVERTEC's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 27x. In other words, EVERTEC shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.
That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
EVERTEC's PEG ratio
EVERTEC's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.14. 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 EVERTEC's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
EVERTEC's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $204.3 million.

Shorting EVERTEC shares
There are currently 1.2 million EVERTEC shares held short by investors – that's known as EVERTEC's "short interest". This figure is 22.2% down from 1.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting EVERTEC shares can be evaluated.
EVERTEC's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
EVERTEC's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of EVERTEC shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of EVERTEC shares traded daily (recently around 259369.67741935). EVERTEC's SIR currently stands at 4.65. In other words for every 100,000 EVERTEC shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4650 shares are currently held short.
However EVERTEC's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of EVERTEC shares, or, against the total number of tradable EVERTEC shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case EVERTEC's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 EVERTEC shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0171% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable EVERTEC shares, roughly 17 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 EVERTEC.

EVERTEC share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 8.93% of net profits
Recently EVERTEC has paid out, on average, around 8.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), EVERTEC shareholders could enjoy a 0.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In EVERTEC's case, that would currently equate to about $0.2 per share.
While EVERTEC's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that EVERTEC is investing more in its future growth.
EVERTEC's most recent dividend payout was on 2 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
