Is Intuit under- or over-valued?
Valuing a stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge value.
Intuit's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 76x. In other words, Intuit shares trade at around 76x 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.
Intuit's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.2046. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Intuit's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Intuit's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $2.8 billion (£2.1 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Intuit's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.9 million Intuit shares held short by investors – that's known as the "short interest". This figure is 7.1% down from 2.1 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Intuit shares can be evaluated.
Short interest ratio (SIR)
Intuit's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Intuit shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Intuit shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Intuit's SIR currently stands at 1.81. In other words for every 100,000 Intuit shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1810 shares are currently held short.
However Intuit's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Intuit shares, or, against the total number of tradable Intuit shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Intuit's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Intuit shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0073% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Intuit shares, roughly 7 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 Intuit.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Intuit 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.).
Intuit's environmental score: 6.61/100

Intuit's social score: 11.98/100

Intuit share dividends
Dividend yield: 0.41% of stock value
Forward annual dividend yield: 0.47% of stock value
Dividend payout ratio: 25.36% of net profits
Intuit has recently paid out dividends equivalent to 0.41% of its share value annually.
Intuit has paid out, on average, around 25.36% of recent net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.47% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), shareholders could enjoy a 0.47% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Intuit's case, that would currently equate to about $2.36 per share.
While Intuit's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that it may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Intuit's most recent dividend payout was on 17 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Intuit's shares ever split?
Intuit's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 6 July 2006. 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 Intuit shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Intuit shares which in turn could have impacted Intuit's share price.
Share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Intuit's shares have ranged in value from as little as $310.7409 up to $582.96. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Intuit's is 1.0218. This would suggest that Intuit's shares 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).
