Valuing Micron Technology stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Micron Technology's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Micron Technology's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 13x. In other words, Micron Technology shares trade at around 13x 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.
Micron Technology's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8066. 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 Micron Technology's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Micron Technology's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $13 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Micron Technology's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 20.2 million Micron Technology shares held short by investors – that's known as Micron Technology's "short interest". This figure is 26% down from 27.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Micron Technology shares can be evaluated.
Micron Technology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Micron Technology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Micron Technology shares traded daily (recently around 17.1 million). Micron Technology's SIR currently stands at 1.18. In other words for every 100,000 Micron Technology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1180 shares are currently held short.
However Micron Technology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Micron Technology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Micron Technology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Micron Technology's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Micron Technology shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0181% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Micron Technology shares, roughly 18 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 Micron Technology.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Micron Technology.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 32.71
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Micron Technology's overall score of 32.71 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 64th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Micron Technology is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 12.48/100
Micron Technology's environmental score of 12.48 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Micron Technology is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 6.08/100
Micron Technology's social score of 6.08 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Micron Technology is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 6.15/100
Micron Technology's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Micron Technology is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Micron Technology scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Micron Technology has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
|Total ESG score||32.71|
|Total ESG percentile||64.48|
|Environmental score percentile||1|
|Social score percentile||1|
|Governance score percentile||1|
|Level of controversy||2|
Dividend payout ratio: 1.65% of net profits
Recently Micron Technology has paid out, on average, around 1.65% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.15% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Micron Technology shareholders could enjoy a 0.15% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Micron Technology's case, that would currently equate to about $0.1 per share.
While Micron Technology's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Micron Technology is investing more in its future growth.
Micron Technology's most recent dividend payout was on 17 October 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Micron Technology's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 May 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Micron Technology shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Micron Technology shares which in turn could have impacted Micron Technology's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Micron Technology's shares have ranged in value from as little as $49.2312 up to $96.8247. 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 Micron Technology's is 1.2677. This would suggest that Micron Technology's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
