Is Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P under- or over-valued?

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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares

There are currently 2.3 million Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares held short by investors – that's known as Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's "short interest". This figure is 24.5% up from 1.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares can be evaluated.

Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares traded daily (recently around 241136.99360341). Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's SIR currently stands at 9.38. In other words for every 100,000 Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9380 shares are currently held short.

However Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares, or, against the total number of tradable Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0077% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares, roughly 8 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P.

Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P share dividends

2%

Dividend payout ratio: 1.5% of net profits

Recently Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P has paid out, on average, around 1.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.53% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shareholders could enjoy a 3.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's case, that would currently equate to about $1.99 per share.

While Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P is investing more in its future growth.

Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's shares ever split?

Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's shares were split on a 112:100 basis on 31 March 2020. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 112 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 10.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P shares which in turn could have impacted Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P's share price.

Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L-P share price volatility
