Is Micron Technology under- or over-valued?
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 P/E ratio
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 21x. In other words, Micron Technology 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.
Micron Technology's PEG ratio
Micron Technology's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2729. 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
Micron Technology's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $11.2 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Micron Technology's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Micron Technology shares
There are currently 23.8 million Micron Technology shares held short by investors – that's known as Micron Technology's "short interest". This figure is 1.7% down from 24.2 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)
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 19.2 million). Micron Technology's SIR currently stands at 1.24. In other words for every 100,000 Micron Technology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1240 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 0.0212% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Micron Technology shares, roughly 21 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.

Have Micron Technology's shares ever split?
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.
Micron Technology share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Micron Technology's shares have ranged in value from as little as $42.25 up to $96.96. 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 1.2541. 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).
