Is Ingersoll Rand under- or over-valued?

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

Ingersoll Rand's P/E ratio

Ingersoll Rand's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 78x. In other words, Ingersoll Rand shares trade at around 78x 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.

Ingersoll Rand's PEG ratio

Ingersoll Rand's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.1876. 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 Ingersoll Rand's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Ingersoll Rand's EBITDA

Ingersoll Rand's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$511.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Ingersoll Rand's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Ingersoll Rand shares

There are currently 16.3 million Ingersoll Rand shares held short by investors – that's known as Ingersoll Rand's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% up from 15.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ingersoll Rand shares can be evaluated.

Ingersoll Rand's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ingersoll Rand's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ingersoll Rand shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ingersoll Rand shares traded daily (recently around 2.2 million). Ingersoll Rand's SIR currently stands at 7.51. In other words for every 100,000 Ingersoll Rand shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7510 shares are currently held short.

However Ingersoll Rand's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ingersoll Rand shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ingersoll Rand shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ingersoll Rand's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ingersoll Rand shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.047% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ingersoll Rand shares, roughly 47 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Ingersoll Rand.
