Is Plexus under- or over-valued?

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

Plexus's P/E ratio

Plexus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Plexus shares trade at around 18x 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.

Plexus's PEG ratio

Plexus's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.61. 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 Plexus's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Plexus's EBITDA

Plexus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $247.5 million.

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

Shorting Plexus shares

There are currently 720,301 Plexus shares held short by investors – that's known as Plexus's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% up from 677,149 last month.

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

Plexus's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Plexus's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Plexus shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Plexus shares traded daily (recently around 82132.383124287). Plexus's SIR currently stands at 8.77. In other words for every 100,000 Plexus shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8770 shares are currently held short.

However Plexus's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Plexus shares, or, against the total number of tradable Plexus shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Plexus's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Plexus shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0261% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Plexus shares, roughly 26 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 Plexus.

Plexus share dividends

We're not expecting Plexus to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Plexus's shares ever split?

Plexus's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 August 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 Plexus shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Plexus shares which in turn could have impacted Plexus's share price.

Plexus share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Plexus's shares have ranged in value from as little as $67.54 up to $101.17. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PLXS.US volatility(beta: 1.19)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 Plexus's is 1.1927. This would suggest that Plexus'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).
