Valuing Semtech Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Semtech Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Semtech 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 106x. In other words, Semtech Corporation shares trade at around 106x 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.
Semtech Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.6513. 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 Semtech 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.
Semtech Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$97.8 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Semtech Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 1.3 million Semtech Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Semtech Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 6% down from 1.4 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Semtech Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Semtech Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Semtech Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Semtech Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 305994.19953596). Semtech Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.31. In other words for every 100,000 Semtech Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4310 shares are currently held short.
However Semtech Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Semtech Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Semtech Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Semtech Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Semtech Corporation shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0236% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Semtech Corporation shares, roughly 24 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 Semtech Corporation.

We're not expecting Semtech Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Semtech Corporation's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 September 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 Semtech Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Semtech Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Semtech Corporation's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Semtech Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $26.03 up to $70.08. 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 Semtech Corporation's is 1.6302. This would suggest that Semtech Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
