Is Ingersoll Rand under- or over-valued?

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

Ingersoll Rand's P/E ratio

Ingersoll Rand's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 60x. In other words, Ingersoll Rand shares trade at around 60x 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.

Ingersoll Rand's PEG ratio

Ingersoll Rand's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.2852. 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 Ingersoll Rand's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Ingersoll Rand 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.).

Ingersoll Rand share dividends

1%

Dividend payout ratio: 1% of net profits

Recently Ingersoll Rand has paid out, on average, around 1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Ingersoll Rand shareholders could enjoy a 0.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Ingersoll Rand's case, that would currently equate to about $2.12 per share.

While Ingersoll Rand's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Ingersoll Rand is investing more in its future growth.

Ingersoll Rand's most recent dividend payout was on 16 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Ingersoll Rand's shares ever split?

Ingersoll Rand's shares were split on a 1252:1000 basis on 1 December 2013. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1252 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Ingersoll Rand shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 20.1% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ingersoll Rand shares which in turn could have impacted Ingersoll Rand's share price.

Ingersoll Rand share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ingersoll Rand's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$40.626 up to US$62.64. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IR.US volatility(beta: 1.47)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ingersoll Rand's is 1.471. This would suggest that Ingersoll Rand's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
