Is Benchmark Electronics stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Benchmark Electronics stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Benchmark Electronics's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Benchmark Electronics's P/E ratio
Benchmark Electronics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Benchmark Electronics shares trade at around 13x 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.
Benchmark Electronics's PEG ratio
Benchmark Electronics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.91. 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 Benchmark Electronics's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Benchmark Electronics's EBITDA
Benchmark Electronics's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $142.9 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Benchmark Electronics's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Benchmark Electronics share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 31.58% of net profits
Recently Benchmark Electronics has paid out, on average, around 31.58% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.83% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Benchmark Electronics shareholders could enjoy a 2.83% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Benchmark Electronics's case, that would currently equate to about $0.66 per share.
While Benchmark Electronics's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Benchmark Electronics may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Benchmark Electronics's most recent dividend payout was on 13 April 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 March 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Benchmark Electronics's shares ever split?
Benchmark Electronics's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 4 April 2006. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Benchmark Electronics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Benchmark Electronics shares which in turn could have impacted Benchmark Electronics's share price.
Benchmark Electronics share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Benchmark Electronics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.58 up to $29.5989. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Benchmark Electronics's is 1.0605. This would suggest that Benchmark Electronics'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).
