Valuing Ingredion stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Ingredion's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Ingredion's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 15x. In other words, Ingredion shares trade at around 15x 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.
Ingredion's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4203. 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 Ingredion's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Ingredion's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $834 million.

There are currently 1.6 million Ingredion shares held short by investors – that's known as Ingredion's "short interest". This figure is 38.8% down from 2.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ingredion shares can be evaluated.
Ingredion's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ingredion shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ingredion shares traded daily (recently around 759009.38967136). Ingredion's SIR currently stands at 2.13. In other words for every 100,000 Ingredion shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2130 shares are currently held short.
However Ingredion's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ingredion shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ingredion shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ingredion's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ingredion shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.027% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ingredion shares, roughly 27 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Ingredion.

Dividend payout ratio: 41.71% of net profits
Recently Ingredion has paid out, on average, around 41.71% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.32% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ingredion shareholders could enjoy a 3.32% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ingredion's case, that would currently equate to about $2.56 per share.
While Ingredion's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Ingredion may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Ingredion's most recent dividend payout was on 28 January 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 31 December 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Ingredion's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 January 2005. 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 Ingredion shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ingredion shares which in turn could have impacted Ingredion's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Ingredion's shares have ranged in value from as little as $57.2088 up to $94.8771. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ingredion's is 0.7505. This would suggest that Ingredion's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
