Valuing Microchip Technology Incorporated stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Microchip Technology Incorporated's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Microchip Technology Incorporated's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 39x. In other words, Microchip Technology Incorporated shares trade at around 39x 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.
Microchip Technology Incorporated's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.3829. 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 Microchip Technology Incorporated's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Microchip Technology Incorporated's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$1.9 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Microchip Technology Incorporated's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 14.5 million Microchip Technology Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as Microchip Technology Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 25.1% down from 19.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Microchip Technology Incorporated shares can be evaluated.
Microchip Technology Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Microchip Technology Incorporated shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Microchip Technology Incorporated shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). Microchip Technology Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 5.59. In other words for every 100,000 Microchip Technology Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5590 shares are currently held short.
However Microchip Technology Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Microchip Technology Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Microchip Technology Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Microchip Technology Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Microchip Technology Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0664% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Microchip Technology Incorporated shares, roughly 66 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 Microchip Technology Incorporated.

Dividend payout ratio: 58.45% of net profits
Recently Microchip Technology Incorporated has paid out, on average, around 58.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Microchip Technology Incorporated shareholders could enjoy a 1.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Microchip Technology Incorporated's case, that would currently equate to about $1.47 per share.
Microchip Technology Incorporated's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Microchip Technology Incorporated's most recent dividend payout was on 4 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Microchip Technology Incorporated's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 9 May 2002. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Microchip Technology Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Microchip Technology Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Microchip Technology Incorporated's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Microchip Technology Incorporated's shares have ranged in value from as little as $53.15 up to $115.11. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Microchip Technology Incorporated's is 1.6048. This would suggest that Microchip Technology Incorporated's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
