Is Morningstar under- or over-valued?
Valuing Morningstar stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Morningstar's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Morningstar's P/E ratio
Morningstar's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 39x. In other words, Morningstar stocks trade at around 39x 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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.
Morningstar's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$359.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Morningstar's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 248,266 Morningstar stocks held short by investors – that's known as Morningstar's "short interest". This figure is 1.5% down from 252,166 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Morningstar stocks can be evaluated.
Morningstar's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Morningstar's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Morningstar stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Morningstar stocks traded daily (recently around 119358.65384615). Morningstar's SIR currently stands at 2.08. In other words for every 100,000 Morningstar stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2080 stocks are currently held short.
However Morningstar's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Morningstar stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Morningstar stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Morningstar's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Morningstar stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0106% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Morningstar stocks, roughly 11 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Morningstar.

Morningstar stock dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 20.59% of net profits
Recently Morningstar has paid out, on average, around 20.59% 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), Morningstar shareholders could enjoy a 0.54% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Morningstar's case, that would currently equate to about $1.23 per share.
While Morningstar's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Morningstar is investing more in its future growth.
Morningstar's most recent dividend payout was on 29 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 7 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Morningstar stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Morningstar's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $138.2869 up to $270.08. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Morningstar's is 1.0853. This would suggest that Morningstar's stocks are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
