Is Marvell Technology Group under- or over-valued?

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

Marvell Technology Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Marvell Technology Group shares trade at around 21x 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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Marvell Technology Group'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 Marvell Technology Group shares

There are currently 17.2 million Marvell Technology Group shares held short by investors – that's known as Marvell Technology Group's "short interest". This figure is 1% down from 17.4 million last month.

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

Marvell Technology Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Marvell Technology Group's SIR currently stands at 2.26. In other words for every 100,000 Marvell Technology Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2260 shares are currently held short.

However Marvell Technology Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Marvell Technology Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable Marvell Technology Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Marvell Technology Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Marvell Technology Group shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0369% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Marvell Technology Group shares, roughly 37 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 Marvell Technology Group.
