Is Littelfuse under- or over-valued?

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

Littelfuse's P/E ratio

Littelfuse's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 27x. In other words, Littelfuse shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Littelfuse's PEG ratio

Littelfuse's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3561. 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 Littelfuse's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Littelfuse's EBITDA

Littelfuse's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $408.8 million.

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

Shorting Littelfuse shares

There are currently 260,715 Littelfuse shares held short by investors – that's known as Littelfuse's "short interest". This figure is 9.9% up from 237,135 last month.

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

Littelfuse's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Littelfuse's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Littelfuse shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Littelfuse shares traded daily (recently around 65342.105263158). Littelfuse's SIR currently stands at 3.99. In other words for every 100,000 Littelfuse shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3990 shares are currently held short.

However Littelfuse's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Littelfuse shares, or, against the total number of tradable Littelfuse shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Littelfuse's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Littelfuse shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0108% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Littelfuse shares, roughly 11 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 Littelfuse.

Littelfuse share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 18.82% of net profits

Recently Littelfuse has paid out, on average, around 18.82% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.76% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Littelfuse shareholders could enjoy a 0.76% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Littelfuse's case, that would currently equate to about $1.92 per share.

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

Littelfuse's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Littelfuse's shares ever split?

Littelfuse's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 June 1997. 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 Littelfuse shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Littelfuse shares which in turn could have impacted Littelfuse's share price.

Littelfuse share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Littelfuse's shares have ranged in value from as little as $164.1912 up to $289.99. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LFUS.US volatility(beta: 1.17)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 Littelfuse's is 1.1692. This would suggest that Littelfuse'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).
