Is ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES under- or over-valued?

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


ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares trade at around 10x 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.


ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.13. 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 ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $8.8 billion.

Shorting ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares

There are currently 210,797 ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares held short by investors – that's known as ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's "short interest". This figure is 42.1% up from 148,356 last month.

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

ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares traded daily (recently around 44099.790794979). ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's SIR currently stands at 4.78. In other words for every 100,000 ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4780 shares are currently held short.

However ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares, or, against the total number of tradable ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0073% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares, roughly 7 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 ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES.

ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.12% of net profits

Recently ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES has paid out, on average, around 1.12% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.04% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shareholders could enjoy a 5.04% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's case, that would currently equate to about $2.2 per share.

While ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES is investing more in its future growth.

ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's most recent dividend payout was on 7 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's shares ever split?

ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's shares were split on a 10000:9355 basis on 30 October 2016. So if you had owned 9355 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 6.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES shares which in turn could have impacted ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES's share price.

ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES share price volatility
