Is NVE Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

NVE Corporation's P/E ratio

NVE 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 28x. In other words, NVE Corporation shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

NVE Corporation's PEG ratio

NVE Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.18. 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 NVE 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.

NVE Corporation's EBITDA

NVE Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $13.4 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a NVE Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting NVE Corporation shares

There are currently 127,535 NVE Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as NVE Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% up from 117,913 last month.

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

NVE Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NVE Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NVE Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NVE Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 24716.085271318). NVE Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.16. In other words for every 100,000 NVE Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5160 shares are currently held short.

However NVE Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NVE Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable NVE Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NVE Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NVE Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0311% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NVE Corporation shares, roughly 31 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 NVE Corporation.

NVE Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 1.55% of net profits

Recently NVE Corporation has paid out, on average, around 1.55% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.81% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NVE Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 5.81% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NVE Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $4 per share.

While NVE Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that NVE Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

NVE Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 25 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 28 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have NVE Corporation's shares ever split?

NVE Corporation's shares were split on a 1:5 basis on 21 November 2002. So if you had owned 5 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NVE Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for NVE Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted NVE Corporation's share price.

NVE Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NVE Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $44.8389 up to $76. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

NVEC.US volatility(beta: 1.1)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while NVE Corporation's is 1.1015. This would suggest that NVE Corporation's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
