Is Lumentum under- or over-valued?
Valuing Lumentum stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Lumentum's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Lumentum's P/E ratio
Lumentum's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Lumentum shares trade at around 17x 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.
Lumentum's PEG ratio
Lumentum's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.97. 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 Lumentum's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Lumentum's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $516 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Lumentum's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Lumentum shares
There are currently 7.5 million Lumentum shares held short by investors – that's known as Lumentum's "short interest". This figure is 1.3% up from 7.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Lumentum shares can be evaluated.
Lumentum's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Lumentum's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lumentum shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lumentum shares traded daily (recently around 869028.05587893). Lumentum's SIR currently stands at 8.59. In other words for every 100,000 Lumentum shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8590 shares are currently held short.
However Lumentum's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lumentum shares, or, against the total number of tradable Lumentum shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lumentum's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Lumentum shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.099% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Lumentum shares, roughly 99 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 Lumentum.
