Is Intercorp Financial Services under- or over-valued?

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

Intercorp Financial Services's P/E ratio

Intercorp Financial Services's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Intercorp Financial Services shares trade at around 8x 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.

Shorting Intercorp Financial Services shares

There are currently 65,416 Intercorp Financial Services shares held short by investors – that's known as Intercorp Financial Services's "short interest". This figure is 17.5% up from 55,650 last month.

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

Intercorp Financial Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Intercorp Financial Services's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Intercorp Financial Services shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Intercorp Financial Services shares traded daily (recently around 30007.339449541). Intercorp Financial Services's SIR currently stands at 2.18. In other words for every 100,000 Intercorp Financial Services shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2180 shares are currently held short.

However Intercorp Financial Services's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Intercorp Financial Services shares, or, against the total number of tradable Intercorp Financial Services shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Intercorp Financial Services's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Intercorp Financial Services shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0019% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Intercorp Financial Services shares, roughly 2 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 Intercorp Financial Services.

Intercorp Financial Services share dividends

20%

Dividend payout ratio: 20.11% of net profits

Recently Intercorp Financial Services has paid out, on average, around 20.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.82% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Intercorp Financial Services shareholders could enjoy a 2.82% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Intercorp Financial Services's case, that would currently equate to about $2.784 per share.

While Intercorp Financial Services's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Intercorp Financial Services is investing more in its future growth.

Intercorp Financial Services's most recent dividend payout was on 5 May 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 April 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Intercorp Financial Services's shares ever split?

Intercorp Financial Services's shares were split on a 16:1 basis on 5 May 2009. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 16 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Intercorp Financial Services shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 93.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Intercorp Financial Services shares which in turn could have impacted Intercorp Financial Services's share price.

Intercorp Financial Services share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Intercorp Financial Services's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.67 up to $34.9619. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IFS.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 Intercorp Financial Services's is 0.8863. This would suggest that Intercorp Financial Services's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
