Valuing Analog Devices stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Analog Devices's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Analog Devices's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 39x. In other words, Analog Devices shares trade at around 39x 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.
Analog Devices's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.2624. 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 Analog Devices's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Analog Devices's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$2.3 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Analog Devices's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 16.7 million Analog Devices shares held short by investors – that's known as Analog Devices's "short interest". This figure is 24.9% up from 13.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Analog Devices shares can be evaluated.
Analog Devices's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Analog Devices shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Analog Devices shares traded daily (recently around 3.2 million). Analog Devices's SIR currently stands at 5.3. In other words for every 100,000 Analog Devices shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5300 shares are currently held short.
However Analog Devices's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Analog Devices shares, or, against the total number of tradable Analog Devices shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Analog Devices's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Analog Devices shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0453% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Analog Devices shares, roughly 45 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Analog Devices.

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 Analog Devices.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 33.14
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Analog Devices's overall score of 33.14 (as at 08/01/2020) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 51st percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Analog Devices 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.).
Environmental score: 18.43/100
Analog Devices's environmental score of 18.43 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Analog Devices is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 14.15/100
Analog Devices's social score of 14.15 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Analog Devices is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 13.07/100
Analog Devices's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Analog Devices is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
|Total ESG score||33.14|

|Social score percentile||9|
|Governance score percentile||9|
Dividend payout ratio: 77.59% of net profits
Recently Analog Devices has paid out, on average, around 77.59% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.16% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Analog Devices shareholders could enjoy a 2.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Analog Devices's case, that would currently equate to about $2.48 per share.
Analog Devices's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Analog Devices's most recent dividend payout was on 9 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Analog Devices's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 16 March 2000. 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 Analog Devices shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Analog Devices shares which in turn could have impacted Analog Devices's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Analog Devices's shares have ranged in value from as little as $79.075 up to $127.39. 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 Analog Devices's is 1.2882. This would suggest that Analog Devices's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
