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 39x. In other words, IHS Markit shares trade at around 39x 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.
IHS Markit's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.918. 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 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's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.5 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a IHS Markit's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 8.7 million IHS Markit shares held short by investors – that's known as IHS Markit's "short interest". This figure is 13.5% down from 10.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting IHS Markit shares can be evaluated.
IHS Markit's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of IHS Markit shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of IHS Markit shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). IHS Markit's SIR currently stands at 4.84. In other words for every 100,000 IHS Markit shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4840 shares are currently held short.
However IHS Markit's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of IHS Markit shares, or, against the total number of tradable IHS Markit shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case IHS Markit's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 IHS Markit shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0247% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable IHS Markit shares, roughly 25 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 IHS Markit.

Dividend payout ratio: 17.17% of net profits
Recently IHS Markit has paid out, on average, around 17.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.89% 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 0.89% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In IHS Markit's case, that would currently equate to about $0.68 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 14 August 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 July 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
IHS Markit's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 13 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.
Over the last 12 months, IHS Markit's shares have ranged in value from as little as $44.81 up to $84.37. 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 0.9632. This would suggest that IHS Markit's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
