Is FormFactor under- or over-valued?
Valuing FormFactor stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of FormFactor's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
FormFactor's P/E ratio
FormFactor's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, FormFactor shares trade at around 35x 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.
FormFactor's PEG ratio
FormFactor's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.71. 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 FormFactor's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
FormFactor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $135.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a FormFactor's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$719.5 million|
|Operating margin TTM||11.95%|
|Gross profit TTM||$288.8 million|

Shorting FormFactor shares
There are currently 1.3 million FormFactor shares held short by investors – that's known as FormFactor's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% down from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting FormFactor shares can be evaluated.
FormFactor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
FormFactor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of FormFactor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of FormFactor shares traded daily (recently around 563145.95744681). FormFactor's SIR currently stands at 2.35. In other words for every 100,000 FormFactor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2350 shares are currently held short.
However FormFactor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of FormFactor shares, or, against the total number of tradable FormFactor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case FormFactor's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 FormFactor shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0172% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable FormFactor shares, roughly 17 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 FormFactor.

FormFactor share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, FormFactor's shares have ranged in value from as little as $22.37 up to $52.388. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while FormFactor's is 1.4091. This would suggest that FormFactor's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
