Intertek Group's P/E ratio
Intertek Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Intertek Group shares trade at around 24x recent earnings.
Intertek Group's PEG ratio
Intertek Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.098. 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 Intertek Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Intertek Group share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 57.75% of net profits
Recently Intertek Group has paid out, on average, around 57.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Intertek Group shareholders could enjoy a 2.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Intertek Group's case, that would currently equate to about $1.093 per share.
Intertek Group'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.
Intertek Group's most recent dividend payout was on 12 October 2017. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 September 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Intertek Group share price volatility

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (PINK average) beta is 1, while Intertek Group's is 0.61. This would suggest that Intertek Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
