Is Benchmark Electronics under- or over-valued?

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 33x. In other words, Benchmark Electronics shares trade at around 33x 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.

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 $97.4 million.

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

Shorting Benchmark Electronics shares

There are currently 719,438 Benchmark Electronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Benchmark Electronics's "short interest". This figure is 15.5% down from 851,186 last month.

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

Benchmark Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Benchmark Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Benchmark Electronics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Benchmark Electronics shares traded daily (recently around 196567.75956284). Benchmark Electronics's SIR currently stands at 3.66. In other words for every 100,000 Benchmark Electronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3660 shares are currently held short.

However Benchmark Electronics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Benchmark Electronics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Benchmark Electronics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Benchmark Electronics's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Benchmark Electronics shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0205% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Benchmark Electronics 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 Benchmark Electronics.

Benchmark Electronics share dividends

57%

Dividend payout ratio: 57.02% of net profits

Recently Benchmark Electronics has paid out, on average, around 57.02% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.53% 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 2.53% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Benchmark Electronics's case, that would currently equate to about $0.645 per share.

Benchmark Electronics'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.

Benchmark Electronics's most recent dividend payout was on 13 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Benchmark Electronics's shares ever split?

Benchmark Electronics's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 3 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 $19.2221 up to $32.1812. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BHE.US volatility(beta: 1.12)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 Benchmark Electronics's is 1.1222. 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).
