Is Intercorp Financial Services stock undervalued or overvalued?
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 6x. In other words, Intercorp Financial Services shares trade at around 6x 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.

Intercorp Financial Services share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 74.07% of net profits
Recently Intercorp Financial Services has paid out, on average, around 74.07% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 11.12% 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 11.12% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Intercorp Financial Services's case, that would currently equate to about $6.985 per share.
Intercorp Financial Services's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Intercorp Financial Services's most recent dividend payout was on 5 May 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 April 2022 (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 $20.7807 up to $37.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
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 0.9893. This would suggest that Intercorp Financial Services's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
