Valuing Silicom stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Silicom's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Silicom's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 46x. In other words, Silicom shares trade at around 46x 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.
Silicom's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.41. 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 Silicom's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Silicom's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$8.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Silicom's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 12,341 Silicom shares held short by investors – that's known as Silicom's "short interest". This figure is 15.7% down from 14,631 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Silicom shares can be evaluated.
Silicom's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Silicom shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Silicom shares traded daily (recently around 20231.147540984). Silicom's SIR currently stands at 0.61. In other words for every 100,000 Silicom shares traded daily on the market, roughly 610 shares are currently held short.
However Silicom's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Silicom shares, or, against the total number of tradable Silicom shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Silicom's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Silicom shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0033% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Silicom shares, roughly 3 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 Silicom.
