Is Infosys under- or over-valued?

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

Infosys's P/E ratio

Infosys'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, Infosys shares trade at around 39x recent earnings.

Infosys's PEG ratio

Infosys's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.3774. 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 Infosys's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Infosys's EBITDA

Infosys's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is INR4.1 billion.

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

Infosys'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 Infosys.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Infosys's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 20.04

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Infosys's overall score of 20.04 (as at 12/31/2018) 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 Infosys 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.).

Infosys's environmental score

Environmental score: 4.57/100

Infosys's environmental score of 4.57 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Infosys is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Infosys's social score

Social score: 12.93/100

Infosys's social score of 12.93 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Infosys is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Infosys's governance score

Governance score: 11.54/100

Infosys's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Infosys is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Infosys's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Infosys scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Infosys has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Infosys share dividends

Dividend payout ratio: 112.44% of net profits

Recently Infosys has paid out, on average, around 112.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Infosys shareholders could enjoy a 1.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Infosys's case, that would currently equate to about INR0.4 per share.

Infosys'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.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 25 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Infosys's shares ever split?

Infosys's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 September 2018. 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 Infosys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Infosys shares which in turn could have impacted Infosys's share price.

Infosys share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Infosys's shares have ranged in value from as little as INR1207.1559 up to INR1953.9. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

INFY.NSE volatility(beta: 0.65)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NSE average) beta is 1, while Infosys's is 0.6469. This would suggest that Infosys's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
