Is ICF International stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing ICF International stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of ICF International's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
ICF International's P/E ratio
ICF International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, ICF International shares trade at around 30x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
ICF International's PEG ratio
ICF International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.881. 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 ICF International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
ICF International's EBITDA
ICF International's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $152.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a ICF International's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

ICF International share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 10.87% of net profits
Recently ICF International has paid out, on average, around 10.87% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ICF International shareholders could enjoy a 0.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ICF International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.
While ICF International's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ICF International is investing more in its future growth.
ICF International's most recent dividend payout was on 12 October 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
ICF International share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, ICF International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $84.3169 up to $110.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ICF International's is 0.6157. This would suggest that ICF International's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
