Is Synopsys under- or over-valued?

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

Synopsys's P/E ratio

Synopsys's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 52x. In other words, Synopsys shares trade at around 52x 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.

Synopsys's PEG ratio

Synopsys's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4485. 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 Synopsys's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Synopsys's EBITDA

Synopsys's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $866.2 million.

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

Shorting Synopsys shares

There are currently 1.2 million Synopsys shares held short by investors – that's known as Synopsys's "short interest". This figure is 7.3% down from 1.3 million last month.

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

Synopsys's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Synopsys's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Synopsys shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Synopsys shares traded daily (recently around 813702.66666667). Synopsys's SIR currently stands at 1.5. In other words for every 100,000 Synopsys shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1500 shares are currently held short.

However Synopsys's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Synopsys shares, or, against the total number of tradable Synopsys shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Synopsys's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Synopsys shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0091% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Synopsys shares, roughly 9 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 Synopsys.

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

Have Synopsys's shares ever split?

Synopsys's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 23 September 2003. 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 Synopsys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Synopsys shares which in turn could have impacted Synopsys's share price.

Over the last 12 months, Synopsys's shares have ranged in value from as little as $158.6 up to $300.91. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SNPS.US volatility(beta: 1.04)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 Synopsys's is 1.0353. This would suggest that Synopsys'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).
