Is Morningstar stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Morningstar stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Morningstar's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Morningstar's P/E ratio
Morningstar's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 52x. In other words, Morningstar shares trade at around 52x 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.
Morningstar's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $345.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Morningstar's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Morningstar share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 34.31% of net profits
Recently Morningstar has paid out, on average, around 34.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Morningstar shareholders could enjoy a 0.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Morningstar's case, that would currently equate to about $1.395 per share.
While Morningstar's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Morningstar may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Morningstar's most recent dividend payout was on 28 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 October 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Morningstar share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Morningstar's shares have ranged in value from as little as $211.58 up to $348.8449. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Morningstar's is 1.1322. This would suggest that Morningstar'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).
