Is Insperity under- or over-valued?

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

Insperity's P/E ratio

Insperity's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 25x. In other words, Insperity shares trade at around 25x 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.

Insperity's PEG ratio

Insperity's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.531. 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 Insperity's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Insperity's EBITDA

Insperity's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $217.2 million.

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

Shorting Insperity shares

There are currently 621,843 Insperity shares held short by investors – that's known as Insperity's "short interest". This figure is 6.3% down from 663,550 last month.

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

Insperity's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Insperity's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Insperity shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Insperity shares traded daily (recently around 327285.78947368). Insperity's SIR currently stands at 1.9. In other words for every 100,000 Insperity shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1900 shares are currently held short.

However Insperity's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Insperity shares, or, against the total number of tradable Insperity shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Insperity's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Insperity shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0205% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Insperity shares, roughly 21 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 Insperity.

Insperity share dividends

34%

Dividend payout ratio: 34.48% of net profits

Recently Insperity has paid out, on average, around 34.48% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Insperity shareholders could enjoy a 1.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Insperity's case, that would currently equate to about $1.6 per share.

While Insperity's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Insperity may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Insperity's most recent dividend payout was on 24 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Insperity's shares ever split?

Insperity's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 December 2017. 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 Insperity shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Insperity shares which in turn could have impacted Insperity's share price.

Insperity share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Insperity's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.1953 up to $95.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NSP.US volatility(beta: 1.54)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Insperity's is 1.535. This would suggest that Insperity's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
