Is Intercontinental Exchange stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Intercontinental Exchange stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Intercontinental Exchange's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Intercontinental Exchange's P/E ratio
Intercontinental Exchange's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, Intercontinental Exchange shares trade at around 38x 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.
Intercontinental Exchange's PEG ratio
Intercontinental Exchange's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.3262. 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 Intercontinental Exchange's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Intercontinental Exchange's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Intercontinental Exchange.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Intercontinental Exchange's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 17.49
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Intercontinental Exchange's overall score of 17.49 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 13rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Intercontinental Exchange is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Intercontinental Exchange's environmental score
Environmental score: 7.12/100
Intercontinental Exchange's environmental score of 7.12 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Intercontinental Exchange is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Intercontinental Exchange's social score
Social score: 10.05/100
Intercontinental Exchange's social score of 10.05 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Intercontinental Exchange is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Intercontinental Exchange's governance score
Governance score: 12.32/100
Intercontinental Exchange's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Intercontinental Exchange is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Intercontinental Exchange's controversy score
Controversy score: 3/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Intercontinental Exchange scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that Intercontinental Exchange hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.
Intercontinental Exchange share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 29.38% of net profits
Recently Intercontinental Exchange has paid out, on average, around 29.38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.71% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Intercontinental Exchange shareholders could enjoy a 1.71% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Intercontinental Exchange's case, that would currently equate to about $1.52 per share.
While Intercontinental Exchange's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Intercontinental Exchange may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Intercontinental Exchange's most recent dividend payout was on 31 March 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 June 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Intercontinental Exchange's shares ever split?
Intercontinental Exchange's shares were split on a 5:1 basis on 4 November 2016. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 5 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Intercontinental Exchange shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 80% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Intercontinental Exchange shares which in turn could have impacted Intercontinental Exchange's share price.
Intercontinental Exchange share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Intercontinental Exchange's shares have ranged in value from as little as $87.9033 up to $133.929. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
