That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).
ICF International's PEG ratio
ICF International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.881. 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 ICF International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ICF International share dividends

Recently ICF International has paid out, on average, around 11.2% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.54% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ICF International shareholders could enjoy a 0.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ICF International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.56 per share.
While ICF International's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ICF International is investing more in its future growth.
