Is SunPower Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

SunPower Corporation's P/E ratio

SunPower 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 11x. In other words, SunPower Corporation shares trade at around 11x 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.

SunPower Corporation's PEG ratio

SunPower Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.02. 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 SunPower 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.

SunPower Corporation's EBITDA

SunPower Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $40.9 million.

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

Shorting SunPower Corporation shares

There are currently 15.0 million SunPower Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as SunPower Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% up from 14.5 million last month.

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

SunPower Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SunPower Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SunPower Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SunPower Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). SunPower Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.74. In other words for every 100,000 SunPower Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5740 shares are currently held short.

However SunPower Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SunPower Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable SunPower Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SunPower Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SunPower Corporation shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1788% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SunPower Corporation shares, roughly 179 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 SunPower Corporation.

SunPower Corporation share dividends

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

Have SunPower Corporation's shares ever split?

SunPower Corporation's shares were split on a 1527:1000 basis on 26 August 2020. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1527 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your SunPower Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 34.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for SunPower Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted SunPower Corporation's share price.

SunPower Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, SunPower Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $14.66 up to $57.5199. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SPWR.US volatility(beta: 1.7)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 SunPower Corporation's is 1.7016. This would suggest that SunPower 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).
