Have Gartner's shares ever split?

Gartner's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 March 1996. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Gartner shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Gartner shares which in turn could have impacted Gartner's share price.

Is it a good time to buy Gartner stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Gartner under- or over-valued?

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

Gartner's P/E ratio

Gartner's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 43x. In other words, Gartner shares trade at around 43x 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.

Gartner's PEG ratio

Gartner's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.99. 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 Gartner's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Gartner's EBITDA

Gartner's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$1.3 billion (£1 billion).

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

Gartner share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Gartner's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$323.61 up to US$486.54. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IT.US volatility(beta: 1.32)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Gartner's is 1.318. This would suggest that Gartner's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
