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

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.

Shorting Innospec shares
There are currently 204,300 Innospec shares held short by investors – that's known as Innospec's "short interest". This figure is 33.2% down from 305,787 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Innospec shares can be evaluated.
Innospec's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Innospec's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Innospec shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Innospec shares traded daily (recently around 116079.54545455). Innospec's SIR currently stands at 1.76. In other words for every 100,000 Innospec shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1760 shares are currently held short.
However Innospec's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Innospec shares, or, against the total number of tradable Innospec shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Innospec's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Innospec shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0084% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Innospec shares, roughly 8 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 Innospec.

Innospec share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 38.11% of net profits
Recently Innospec has paid out, on average, around 38.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Innospec shareholders could enjoy a 1.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Innospec's case, that would currently equate to about $1.04 per share.
While Innospec's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Innospec may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Innospec's most recent dividend payout was on 25 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Innospec's shares ever split?
Innospec's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 22 July 2007. 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 Innospec shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Innospec shares which in turn could have impacted Innospec's share price.
Innospec share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Innospec's shares have ranged in value from as little as $60.7368 up to $107.145. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Innospec's is 1.3079. This would suggest that Innospec's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
