Is Investors Title Company under- or over-valued?
Valuing Investors Title Company stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Investors Title Company's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

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.

Investors Title Company share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 78.73% of net profits
Recently Investors Title Company has paid out, on average, around 78.73% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Investors Title Company shareholders could enjoy a 1.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Investors Title Company's case, that would currently equate to about $1.82 per share.
Investors Title Company's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Investors Title Company's most recent dividend payout was on 30 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 March 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Investors Title Company's shares ever split?
Investors Title Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 15 September 1987. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Investors Title Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Investors Title Company shares which in turn could have impacted Investors Title Company's share price.
Investors Title Company share price volatility
