Is Skyworks Solutions under- or over-valued?

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

Skyworks Solutions's P/E ratio

Skyworks Solutions's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 19x. In other words, Skyworks Solutions shares trade at around 19x 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.

Skyworks Solutions's PEG ratio

Skyworks Solutions's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7905. 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 Skyworks Solutions's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Skyworks Solutions's EBITDA

Skyworks Solutions's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1.9 billion.

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

Shorting Skyworks Solutions shares

There are currently 2.9 million Skyworks Solutions shares held short by investors – that's known as Skyworks Solutions's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% down from 3.2 million last month.

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

Skyworks Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Skyworks Solutions's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Skyworks Solutions shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Skyworks Solutions shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). Skyworks Solutions's SIR currently stands at 2.35. In other words for every 100,000 Skyworks Solutions shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2350 shares are currently held short.

However Skyworks Solutions's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Skyworks Solutions shares, or, against the total number of tradable Skyworks Solutions shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Skyworks Solutions's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Skyworks Solutions shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0178% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Skyworks Solutions shares, roughly 18 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 Skyworks Solutions.

Skyworks Solutions share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 21.17% of net profits

Recently Skyworks Solutions has paid out, on average, around 21.17% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Skyworks Solutions shareholders could enjoy a 1.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Skyworks Solutions's case, that would currently equate to about $2 per share.

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

Skyworks Solutions's most recent dividend payout was on 6 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 15 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Skyworks Solutions's shares ever split?

Skyworks Solutions's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 19 April 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 Skyworks Solutions shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Skyworks Solutions shares which in turn could have impacted Skyworks Solutions's share price.

Skyworks Solutions share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Skyworks Solutions's shares have ranged in value from as little as $133.1118 up to $202.7625. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SWKS.US volatility(beta: 1.11)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 Skyworks Solutions's is 1.1127. This would suggest that Skyworks Solutions'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).
