Is Genpact under- or over-valued?

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

Genpact's P/E ratio

Genpact's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Genpact shares trade at around 26x 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).

Genpact's PEG ratio

Genpact's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7. 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 Genpact's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Genpact's EBITDA

Genpact's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$575.6 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Genpact's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Genpact shares

There are currently 3.2 million Genpact shares held short by investors – that's known as Genpact's "short interest". This figure is 26.2% up from 2.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Genpact shares can be evaluated.

Genpact's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Genpact's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Genpact shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Genpact shares traded daily (recently around 706178.07017544). Genpact's SIR currently stands at 4.56. In other words for every 100,000 Genpact shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4560 shares are currently held short.

However Genpact's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Genpact shares, or, against the total number of tradable Genpact shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Genpact's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Genpact shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0194% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Genpact shares, roughly 19 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 Genpact.

Genpact share dividends

18%

Dividend payout ratio: 17.89% of net profits

Recently Genpact has paid out, on average, around 17.89% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.93% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Genpact shareholders could enjoy a 0.93% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Genpact's case, that would currently equate to about $0.39 per share.

While Genpact's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Genpact is investing more in its future growth.

Genpact's most recent dividend payout was on 23 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Genpact share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Genpact's shares have ranged in value from as little as $19.2631 up to $44.7452. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

G.US volatility(beta: 1.33)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Genpact's is 1.3265. This would suggest that Genpact's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
