Is Intercontinental Exchange stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Intercontinental Exchange's P/E ratio

Intercontinental Exchange'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, Intercontinental Exchange 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.

Intercontinental Exchange's PEG ratio

Intercontinental Exchange's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.3262. 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 Intercontinental Exchange's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Intercontinental Exchange's EBITDA

Intercontinental Exchange's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $4.6 billion.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Intercontinental Exchange is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Intercontinental Exchange's environmental score

Intercontinental Exchange share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 27.27% of net profits

Recently Intercontinental Exchange has paid out, on average, around 27.27% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.56% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Intercontinental Exchange shareholders could enjoy a 1.56% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Intercontinental Exchange's case, that would currently equate to about $1.42 per share.

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

Intercontinental Exchange's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 December 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Intercontinental Exchange's shares ever split?

Intercontinental Exchange's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 3 November 2016. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Intercontinental Exchange shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Intercontinental Exchange shares which in turn could have impacted Intercontinental Exchange's share price.

Intercontinental Exchange share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Intercontinental Exchange's shares have ranged in value from as little as $89.7074 up to $137.969. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ICE.US volatility(beta: 0.89)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 Intercontinental Exchange's is 0.8925. This would suggest that Intercontinental Exchange's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
