Is ICICI Bank under- or over-valued?

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

ICICI Bank's P/E ratio

ICICI Bank's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 40x. In other words, ICICI Bank shares trade at around 40x 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.

Shorting ICICI Bank shares

There are currently 24.9 million ICICI Bank shares held short by investors – that's known as ICICI Bank's "short interest". This figure is 41.4% up from 17.6 million last month.

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

ICICI Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ICICI Bank's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ICICI Bank shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ICICI Bank shares traded daily (recently around 9.0 million). ICICI Bank's SIR currently stands at 2.76. In other words for every 100,000 ICICI Bank shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2760 shares are currently held short.

However ICICI Bank's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ICICI Bank shares, or, against the total number of tradable ICICI Bank shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ICICI Bank's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ICICI Bank shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ICICI Bank shares, roughly 0 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 ICICI Bank.

ICICI Bank share dividends

We're not expecting ICICI Bank to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have ICICI Bank's shares ever split?

ICICI Bank's shares were split on a 11:10 basis on 19 June 2017. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 11 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ICICI Bank shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ICICI Bank shares which in turn could have impacted ICICI Bank's share price.

ICICI Bank share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ICICI Bank's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.86 up to $15.42. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IBN.US volatility(beta: 1.14)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 ICICI Bank's is 1.1445. This would suggest that ICICI Bank's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
