Is ASE Technology Holding CoLtd under- or over-valued?

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

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's P/E ratio

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd'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, ASE Technology Holding CoLtd 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.

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's PEG ratio

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.38. 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 ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's EBITDA

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $94.9 billion.

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

Shorting ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shares

There are currently 6.6 million ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shares held short by investors – that's known as ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's "short interest". This figure is 38.5% down from 10.8 million last month.

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

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shares traded daily (recently around 4.8 million). ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's SIR currently stands at 1.37. In other words for every 100,000 ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1370 shares are currently held short.

However ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shares, or, against the total number of tradable ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0042% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shares, roughly 4 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 ASE Technology Holding CoLtd.

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd share dividends

53%

Dividend payout ratio: 53.11% of net profits

Recently ASE Technology Holding CoLtd has paid out, on average, around 53.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shareholders could enjoy a 4.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's case, that would currently equate to about $4.2 per share.

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd'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.

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's most recent dividend payout was on 6 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 2 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's shares ever split?

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's shares were split on a 1029:1000 basis on 12 August 2008. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1029 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ASE Technology Holding CoLtd shares which in turn could have impacted ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's share price.

ASE Technology Holding CoLtd share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's shares have ranged in value from as little as $4.086 up to $9.37. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ASX.US volatility(beta: 1.23)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 ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's is 1.2281. This would suggest that ASE Technology Holding CoLtd's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
