Is Information Services Group under- or over-valued?

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

Information Services Group's P/E ratio

Information Services Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Information Services Group shares trade at around 24x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Information Services Group's PEG ratio

Information Services Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0935. 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 Information Services Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Information Services Group's EBITDA

Information Services Group's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $32.2 million.

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

Information Services Group share dividends

20%

Dividend payout ratio: 20.45% of net profits

Recently Information Services Group has paid out, on average, around 20.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.86% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Information Services Group shareholders could enjoy a 1.86% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Information Services Group's case, that would currently equate to about $0.06 per share.

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

Information Services Group's most recent dividend payout was on 16 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 1 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Information Services Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Information Services Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.3358 up to $9.6626. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
