Is Intuit under- or over-valued?

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

Intuit's P/E ratio

Intuit's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 66x. In other words, Intuit shares trade at around 66x 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.

Intuit's PEG ratio

Intuit's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.4783. 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 Intuit's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Intuit's EBITDA

Intuit's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.9 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Intuit's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Intuit shares

There are currently 1.7 million Intuit shares held short by investors – that's known as Intuit's "short interest". This figure is 21.1% down from 2.1 million last month.

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

Intuit's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Intuit's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Intuit shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Intuit shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Intuit's SIR currently stands at 1.38. In other words for every 100,000 Intuit shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1380 shares are currently held short.

However Intuit's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Intuit shares, or, against the total number of tradable Intuit shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Intuit's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Intuit shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0063% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Intuit shares, roughly 6 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 Intuit.

Intuit's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Intuit.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Intuit's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 20.74

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Intuit's overall score of 20.74 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 15th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Intuit is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Intuit's environmental score

Environmental score: 6.61/100

Intuit's environmental score of 6.61 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Intuit is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Intuit's social score

Social score: 11.98/100

Intuit's social score of 11.98 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Intuit is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Intuit's governance score

Governance score: 9.15/100

Intuit's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Intuit is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Intuit scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Intuit has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Intuit share dividends

25%

Dividend payout ratio: 24.84% of net profits

Recently Intuit has paid out, on average, around 24.84% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.46% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Intuit shareholders could enjoy a 0.46% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Intuit's case, that would currently equate to about $2.3 per share.

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

Intuit's most recent dividend payout was on 18 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Intuit's shares ever split?

Intuit's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 6 July 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Intuit shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Intuit shares which in turn could have impacted Intuit's share price.

Intuit share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Intuit's shares have ranged in value from as little as $288.7321 up to $522.09. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

INTU.US volatility(beta: 1)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Intuit's is 1.0044. This would suggest that Intuit's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
