Is MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

MagnaChip 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 2x. In other words, MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation shares trade at around 2x 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.

MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation's PEG ratio

MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.5786. 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 MagnaChip 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.

Shorting MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation shares

There are currently 4.2 million MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 31.3% up from 3.2 million last month.

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

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

MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 673620.06369427). MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.28. In other words for every 100,000 MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6280 shares are currently held short.

However MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.12% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation shares in existence, roughly 120 shares are currently held short) or 0.1222% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation shares, roughly 122 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 MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation.
