Is Infosys under- or over-valued?
Valuing Infosys stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Infosys's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Infosys's P/E ratio
Infosys's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, Infosys shares trade at around 34x 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.
Infosys's PEG ratio
Infosys's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.5589. 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 Infosys's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Infosys's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Infosys's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Infosys shares
There are currently 20.2 million Infosys shares held short by investors – that's known as Infosys's "short interest". This figure is 28.9% down from 28.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Infosys shares can be evaluated.
Infosys's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Infosys's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Infosys shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Infosys shares traded daily (recently around 6.0 million). Infosys's SIR currently stands at 3.38. In other words for every 100,000 Infosys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3380 shares are currently held short.
However Infosys's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Infosys shares, or, against the total number of tradable Infosys shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Infosys's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Infosys shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0055% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Infosys shares, roughly 6 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 Infosys.

Infosys share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 46.49% of net profits
Recently Infosys has paid out, on average, around 46.49% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Infosys shareholders could enjoy a 1.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Infosys's case, that would currently equate to about $0.36 per share.
While Infosys's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Infosys may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Infosys's most recent dividend payout was on 28 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Infosys's shares ever split?
Infosys's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 11 September 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Infosys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Infosys shares which in turn could have impacted Infosys's share price.
Infosys share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Infosys's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.9472 up to $22.135. 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 Infosys's is 0.5874. This would suggest that Infosys's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
