Is Power Integrations under- or over-valued?

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

Power Integrations's P/E ratio

Power Integrations's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 50x. In other words, Power Integrations shares trade at around 50x 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.

Power Integrations's PEG ratio

Power Integrations's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7. 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 Power Integrations's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Power Integrations's EBITDA

Power Integrations's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $159.6 million.

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

Shorting Power Integrations shares

There are currently 1.7 million Power Integrations shares held short by investors – that's known as Power Integrations's "short interest". This figure is 2.6% down from 1.7 million last month.

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

Power Integrations's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Power Integrations's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Power Integrations shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Power Integrations shares traded daily (recently around 317016.63516068). Power Integrations's SIR currently stands at 5.29. In other words for every 100,000 Power Integrations shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5290 shares are currently held short.

However Power Integrations's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Power Integrations shares, or, against the total number of tradable Power Integrations shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Power Integrations's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Power Integrations shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0382% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Power Integrations shares, roughly 38 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 Power Integrations.

Power Integrations share dividends

19%

Dividend payout ratio: 19.31% of net profits

Recently Power Integrations has paid out, on average, around 19.31% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.51% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Power Integrations shareholders could enjoy a 0.51% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Power Integrations's case, that would currently equate to about $0.48 per share.

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

Power Integrations's most recent dividend payout was on 29 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Power Integrations's shares ever split?

Power Integrations's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 August 2020. 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 Power Integrations shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Power Integrations shares which in turn could have impacted Power Integrations's share price.

Power Integrations share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Power Integrations's shares have ranged in value from as little as $54.7733 up to $110.66. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
