Is Amkor Technology under- or over-valued?

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

Amkor Technology's P/E ratio

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

Amkor Technology's PEG ratio

Amkor Technology's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.87. 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 Amkor Technology's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Amkor Technology's EBITDA

Amkor Technology's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.1 billion.

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

Shorting Amkor Technology shares

There are currently 4.3 million Amkor Technology shares held short by investors – that's known as Amkor Technology's "short interest". This figure is 7.3% up from 4.0 million last month.

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

Amkor Technology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Amkor Technology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Amkor Technology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Amkor Technology shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Amkor Technology's SIR currently stands at 3.4. In other words for every 100,000 Amkor Technology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3400 shares are currently held short.

However Amkor Technology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Amkor Technology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Amkor Technology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Amkor Technology's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Amkor Technology shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0421% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Amkor Technology shares, roughly 42 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 Amkor Technology.

Amkor Technology share dividends

8%

Dividend payout ratio: 8.42% of net profits

Recently Amkor Technology has paid out, on average, around 8.42% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.72% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Amkor Technology shareholders could enjoy a 0.72% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Amkor Technology's case, that would currently equate to about $0.12 per share.

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

Amkor Technology's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Amkor Technology share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Amkor Technology's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.7483 up to $29.5. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMKR.US volatility(beta: 1.64)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Amkor Technology's is 1.6392. This would suggest that Amkor Technology's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
