Is Insight Enterprises under- or over-valued?

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

Insight Enterprises's P/E ratio

Insight Enterprises's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Insight Enterprises shares trade at around 18x 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.

Insight Enterprises's PEG ratio

Insight Enterprises's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1039. 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 Insight Enterprises's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Insight Enterprises's EBITDA

Insight Enterprises's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $377.2 million.

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

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Insight Enterprises shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Insight Enterprises shares which in turn could have impacted Insight Enterprises's share price.
