Is Synaptics Incorporated under- or over-valued?

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Synaptics Incorporated's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Synaptics Incorporated shares

There are currently 4.4 million Synaptics Incorporated shares held short by investors – that's known as Synaptics Incorporated's "short interest". This figure is 0.5% up from 4.4 million last month.

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

Synaptics Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Synaptics Incorporated's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Synaptics Incorporated shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Synaptics Incorporated shares traded daily (recently around 480631.90789474). Synaptics Incorporated's SIR currently stands at 9.12. In other words for every 100,000 Synaptics Incorporated shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9120 shares are currently held short.

However Synaptics Incorporated's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Synaptics Incorporated shares, or, against the total number of tradable Synaptics Incorporated shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Synaptics Incorporated's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Synaptics Incorporated shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.2327% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Synaptics Incorporated shares, roughly 233 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 Synaptics Incorporated.

Have Synaptics Incorporated's shares ever split?

Synaptics Incorporated's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 1 September 2008. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Synaptics Incorporated shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Synaptics Incorporated shares which in turn could have impacted Synaptics Incorporated's share price.

SYNA.US volatility(beta: 1.24)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 Synaptics Incorporated's is 1.2421. This would suggest that Synaptics Incorporated'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).
