Is Information Services Group under- or over-valued?

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

Information Services Group's P/E ratio

Information Services Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, Information Services Group shares trade at around 38x 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.

Information Services Group's PEG ratio

Information Services Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3348. 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 Information Services Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Information Services Group's EBITDA

Information Services Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $26.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Information Services Group's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Information Services Group shares

There are currently 761,732 Information Services Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Information Services Group's "short interest". This figure is 194.3% up from 258,822 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Information Services Group shares can be evaluated.

Information Services Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Information Services Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Information Services Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Information Services Group shares traded daily (recently around 581474.80916031). Information Services Group's SIR currently stands at 1.31. In other words for every 100,000 Information Services Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1310 shares are currently held short.

However Information Services Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Information Services Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Information Services Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Information Services Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Information Services Group shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0239% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Information Services Group shares, roughly 24 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 Information Services Group.

Information Services Group share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 10% of net profits

Recently Information Services Group has paid out, on average, around 10% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.03% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Information Services Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.03% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Information Services Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.

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

Information Services Group's most recent dividend payout was on 17 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Information Services Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Information Services Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.9897 up to $6.2862. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
