Is Lattice Semiconductor Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's P/E ratio

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 134x. In other words, Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares trade at around 134x 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.

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's PEG ratio

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.18. 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 Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's EBITDA

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$81.9 million.

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

Shorting Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares

There are currently 5.7 million Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 13% down from 6.6 million last month.

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

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 805987.55304102). Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.07. In other words for every 100,000 Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7070 shares are currently held short.

However Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.048% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares, roughly 48 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 Lattice Semiconductor Corporation.

We're not expecting Lattice Semiconductor Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's shares ever split?

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 October 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 Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Lattice Semiconductor Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's share price.

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $13.54 up to $46.89. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LSCC.US volatility(beta: 1.03)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 Lattice Semiconductor Corporation's is 1.0341. This would suggest that Lattice Semiconductor Corporation'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).
