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

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 76x. In other words, IHS Markit shares trade at around 76x 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.

IHS Markit share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 33.76% of net profits
Recently IHS Markit has paid out, on average, around 33.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.67% 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 0.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In IHS Markit's case, that would currently equate to about $0.77 per share.
While IHS Markit's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that IHS Markit may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
IHS Markit's most recent dividend payout was on 11 November 2021. 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 $83.299 up to $135.82. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while IHS Markit's is 1.0035. 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).
