Is IHS Markit stock undervalued or overvalued?

IHS Markit's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 36x. In other words, IHS Markit shares trade at around 36x 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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into IHS Markit's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like IHS Markit is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

IHS Markit share dividends

25%

Dividend payout ratio: 24.84% of net profits

Recently IHS Markit has paid out, on average, around 24.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.74% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), IHS Markit shareholders could enjoy a 0.74% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In IHS Markit's case, that would currently equate to about $0.8 per share.

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

IHS Markit's most recent dividend payout was on 10 February 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 January 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have IHS Markit's shares ever split?

IHS Markit's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 12 July 2016. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your IHS Markit shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for IHS Markit shares which in turn could have impacted IHS Markit's share price.

IHS Markit share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, IHS Markit's shares have ranged in value from as little as $102.91 up to $119.11. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

INFO.US volatility(beta: 1.05)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 IHS Markit's is 1.0457. This would suggest that IHS Markit'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).
