Is Intertek Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

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

Over the last 12 months, Intertek Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.8505 up to $55.0236. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IKTSF.US volatility(beta: 0.61)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

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).
