Is Insight Enterprises under- or over-valued?

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

Insight Enterprises's P/E ratio

Insight Enterprises's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, Insight Enterprises shares trade at around 16x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Insight Enterprises's PEG ratio

Insight Enterprises's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1762. 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 Insight Enterprises's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Insight Enterprises's EBITDA

Insight Enterprises's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$340.2 million.

Shorting Insight Enterprises shares

There are currently 2.4 million Insight Enterprises shares held short by investors – that's known as Insight Enterprises's "short interest". This figure is 2% up from 2.3 million last month.

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

Insight Enterprises's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Insight Enterprises's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Insight Enterprises shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Insight Enterprises shares traded daily (recently around 228182.34165067). Insight Enterprises's SIR currently stands at 10.42. In other words for every 100,000 Insight Enterprises shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10420 shares are currently held short.

However Insight Enterprises's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Insight Enterprises shares, or, against the total number of tradable Insight Enterprises shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Insight Enterprises's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Insight Enterprises shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.112% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Insight Enterprises shares, roughly 112 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Insight Enterprises.

Insight Enterprises share dividends

We're not expecting Insight Enterprises to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Insight Enterprises's shares ever split?

Insight Enterprises's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 19 September 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares 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 Insight Enterprises shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Insight Enterprises shares which in turn could have impacted Insight Enterprises's share price.

Insight Enterprises share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Insight Enterprises's shares have ranged in value from as little as $28.2506 up to $74.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NSIT.US volatility(beta: 1.68)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Insight Enterprises's is 1.6781. This would suggest that Insight Enterprises's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
