Is Fabrinet under- or over-valued?

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

Fabrinet's P/E ratio

Fabrinet's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Fabrinet shares trade at around 26x 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.

Fabrinet's PEG ratio

Fabrinet's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.19. 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 Fabrinet's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Fabrinet's EBITDA

Fabrinet's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $187 million.

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

Shorting Fabrinet shares

There are currently 426,377 Fabrinet shares held short by investors – that's known as Fabrinet's "short interest". This figure is 13.8% up from 374,674 last month.

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

Fabrinet's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Fabrinet's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Fabrinet shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Fabrinet shares traded daily (recently around 176919.91701245). Fabrinet's SIR currently stands at 2.41. In other words for every 100,000 Fabrinet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2410 shares are currently held short.

However Fabrinet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Fabrinet shares, or, against the total number of tradable Fabrinet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Fabrinet's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Fabrinet shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0117% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Fabrinet shares, roughly 12 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 Fabrinet.

FN.US volatility(beta: 1.02)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 Fabrinet's is 1.0169. This would suggest that Fabrinet'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).
