Is Avnet under- or over-valued?
Valuing Avnet stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Avnet's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Avnet's P/E ratio
Avnet's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Avnet shares trade at around 24x 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.
Avnet's PEG ratio
Avnet's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4002. 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 Avnet's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Avnet's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $391.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Avnet's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Avnet shares
There are currently 2.1 million Avnet shares held short by investors – that's known as Avnet's "short interest". This figure is 2.5% down from 2.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Avnet shares can be evaluated.
Avnet's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Avnet's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avnet shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avnet shares traded daily (recently around 697927.48344371). Avnet's SIR currently stands at 3.02. In other words for every 100,000 Avnet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3020 shares are currently held short.
However Avnet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avnet shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avnet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avnet's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avnet shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0213% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avnet shares, roughly 21 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 Avnet.

Avnet share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 38.29% of net profits
Recently Avnet has paid out, on average, around 38.29% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.19% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Avnet shareholders could enjoy a 2.19% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Avnet's case, that would currently equate to about $0.84 per share.
While Avnet's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Avnet may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Avnet's most recent dividend payout was on 22 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Avnet's shares ever split?
Avnet's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 September 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 Avnet shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Avnet shares which in turn could have impacted Avnet's share price.
Avnet share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Avnet's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.8814 up to $45.2002. 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 Avnet's is 1.5326. This would suggest that Avnet's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
