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 current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Intercontinental Exchange shares trade at around 32x 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.

Intercontinental Exchange share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 26.77% of net profits
Recently Intercontinental Exchange has paid out, on average, around 26.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.04% 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 1.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Intercontinental Exchange's case, that would currently equate to about $1.29 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 30 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 December 2021 (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
