Is Entegris under- or over-valued?

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

Entegris's P/E ratio

Entegris's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 49x. In other words, Entegris shares trade at around 49x 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.

Entegris's PEG ratio

Entegris's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.58. 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 Entegris's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Entegris's EBITDA

Entegris's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$480.3 million.

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

Shorting Entegris shares

There are currently 3.5 million Entegris shares held short by investors – that's known as Entegris's "short interest". This figure is 4.1% up from 3.3 million last month.

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

Entegris's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Entegris's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Entegris shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Entegris shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Entegris's SIR currently stands at 3.22. In other words for every 100,000 Entegris shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3220 shares are currently held short.

However Entegris's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Entegris shares, or, against the total number of tradable Entegris shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Entegris's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Entegris shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.03% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Entegris shares, roughly 30 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 Entegris.

Entegris share dividends

15%

Dividend payout ratio: 14.55% of net profits

Recently Entegris has paid out, on average, around 14.55% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.39% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Entegris shareholders could enjoy a 0.39% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Entegris's case, that would currently equate to about $0.32 per share.

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

Entegris's most recent dividend payout was on 18 November 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 October 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Entegris's shares ever split?

Entegris's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 March 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 Entegris shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Entegris shares which in turn could have impacted Entegris's share price.

Entegris share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Entegris's shares have ranged in value from as little as $38.12 up to $85.14. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ENTG.US volatility(beta: 1.18)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Entegris's is 1.1776. This would suggest that Entegris'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).
