Is Luminex Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Luminex Corporation's P/E ratio

Luminex 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 74x. In other words, Luminex Corporation shares trade at around 74x 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.

Luminex Corporation's PEG ratio

Luminex Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7. 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 Luminex 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.

Luminex Corporation's EBITDA

Luminex Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $85.6 million.

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

Shorting Luminex Corporation shares

There are currently 2.0 million Luminex Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Luminex Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.9% down from 2.2 million last month.

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

Luminex Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Luminex Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Luminex Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Luminex Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 403664.07185629). Luminex Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.01. In other words for every 100,000 Luminex Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5010 shares are currently held short.

However Luminex Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Luminex Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Luminex Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Luminex Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Luminex Corporation shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0484% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Luminex 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 Luminex Corporation.

Luminex Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.63% of net profits

Recently Luminex Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.63% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.08% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Luminex Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 1.08% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Luminex Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.38 per share.

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

Luminex Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 7 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Luminex Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Luminex Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.4101 up to $41.135. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

LMNX.US volatility(beta: 0.57)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
