Is TE Connectivity under- or over-valued?

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

TE Connectivity's P/E ratio

TE Connectivity's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, TE Connectivity shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

TE Connectivity's PEG ratio

TE Connectivity's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4465. 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 TE Connectivity's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TE Connectivity's EBITDA

Shorting TE Connectivity shares

There are currently 4.2 million TE Connectivity shares held short by investors – that's known as TE Connectivity's "short interest". This figure is 7.5% down from 4.5 million last month.

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

TE Connectivity's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

TE Connectivity's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of TE Connectivity shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of TE Connectivity shares traded daily (recently around 1.2 million). TE Connectivity's SIR currently stands at 3.48. In other words for every 100,000 TE Connectivity shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3480 shares are currently held short.

However TE Connectivity's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of TE Connectivity shares, or, against the total number of tradable TE Connectivity shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case TE Connectivity's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 TE Connectivity shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0128% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable TE Connectivity shares, roughly 13 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 TE Connectivity.

TE Connectivity share dividends

33%

Dividend payout ratio: 32.72% of net profits

Recently TE Connectivity has paid out, on average, around 32.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.37% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), TE Connectivity shareholders could enjoy a 1.37% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In TE Connectivity's case, that would currently equate to about $1.94 per share.

While TE Connectivity's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that TE Connectivity may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

TE Connectivity's most recent dividend payout was on 3 March 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 17 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

TE Connectivity share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, TE Connectivity's shares have ranged in value from as little as $92.7399 up to $153.54. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TEL.US volatility(beta: 1.37)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while TE Connectivity's is 1.3661. This would suggest that TE Connectivity's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
