Is InterDigital under- or over-valued?
Valuing InterDigital stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of InterDigital's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
InterDigital's P/E ratio
InterDigital's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 41x. In other words, InterDigital shares trade at around 41x 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.
InterDigital's PEG ratio
InterDigital's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 5.1283. 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 InterDigital's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
InterDigital's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $144.2 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a InterDigital's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting InterDigital shares
There are currently 1.7 million InterDigital shares held short by investors – that's known as InterDigital's "short interest". This figure is 16.7% down from 2.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting InterDigital shares can be evaluated.
InterDigital's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
InterDigital's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of InterDigital shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of InterDigital shares traded daily (recently around 238313.13131313). InterDigital's SIR currently stands at 6.93. In other words for every 100,000 InterDigital shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6930 shares are currently held short.
However InterDigital's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of InterDigital shares, or, against the total number of tradable InterDigital shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case InterDigital's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 InterDigital shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0543% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable InterDigital shares, roughly 54 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against InterDigital.

InterDigital share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 99.86% of net profits
Recently InterDigital has paid out, on average, around 99.86% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), InterDigital shareholders could enjoy a 2.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In InterDigital's case, that would currently equate to about $1.4 per share.
InterDigital'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.
InterDigital's most recent dividend payout was on 27 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 July 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
InterDigital share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, InterDigital's shares have ranged in value from as little as $53.5438 up to $85.325. 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 InterDigital's is 1.0713. This would suggest that InterDigital'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).
