Is Invesco under- or over-valued?

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

Invesco's P/E ratio

Invesco's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Invesco shares trade at around 19x 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.

Invesco's PEG ratio

Invesco's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4077. 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 Invesco's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Invesco's EBITDA

Invesco's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$1.5 billion.

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

Shorting Invesco shares

There are currently 10.6 million Invesco shares held short by investors – that's known as Invesco's "short interest". This figure is 18.5% down from 13.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Invesco shares can be evaluated.

Invesco's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Invesco's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Invesco shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Invesco shares traded daily (recently around 3.5 million). Invesco's SIR currently stands at 3.02. In other words for every 100,000 Invesco shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3020 shares are currently held short.

However Invesco's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Invesco shares, or, against the total number of tradable Invesco shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Invesco's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Invesco shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0281% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Invesco shares, roughly 28 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 Invesco.

Invesco'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 Invesco.

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

Invesco's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 30.23

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Invesco's overall score of 30.23 (as at 12/31/2018) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 46th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Invesco's environmental score

Environmental score: 7.01/100

Invesco's environmental score of 7.01 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Invesco is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Invesco's social score

Social score: 17.33/100

Invesco's social score of 17.33 puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Invesco is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Invesco's governance score

Governance score: 15.4/100

Invesco's governance score puts it squarely in the 6th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Invesco is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Invesco's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Invesco scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that Invesco has managed to keep its nose clean.

Invesco share dividends

28%

Dividend payout ratio: 27.85% of net profits

Recently Invesco has paid out, on average, around 27.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Invesco shareholders could enjoy a 2.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Invesco's case, that would currently equate to about $0.635 per share.

While Invesco's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Invesco may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Invesco's most recent dividend payout was on 2 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 9 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Invesco's shares ever split?

Invesco's shares were split on a 25:10 basis on 7 November 2000. So if you had owned 10 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 25 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Invesco shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 60% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Invesco shares which in turn could have impacted Invesco's share price.

Invesco share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Invesco's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$9.366 up to US$29.71. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IVZ.US volatility(beta: 1.31)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 Invesco's is 1.3092. This would suggest that Invesco's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
