Is Tower Semiconductor under- or over-valued?

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

Tower Semiconductor's P/E ratio

Tower Semiconductor's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 32x. In other words, Tower Semiconductor shares trade at around 32x 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.

Tower Semiconductor's PEG ratio

Tower Semiconductor's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9. 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 Tower Semiconductor's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Tower Semiconductor's EBITDA

Tower Semiconductor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $352.9 million.

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

Shorting Tower Semiconductor shares

There are currently 438,842 Tower Semiconductor shares held short by investors – that's known as Tower Semiconductor's "short interest". This figure is 6.7% down from 470,304 last month.

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

Tower Semiconductor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tower Semiconductor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tower Semiconductor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tower Semiconductor shares traded daily (recently around 302649.65517241). Tower Semiconductor's SIR currently stands at 1.45. In other words for every 100,000 Tower Semiconductor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1450 shares are currently held short.

However Tower Semiconductor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tower Semiconductor shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tower Semiconductor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tower Semiconductor's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tower Semiconductor shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0044% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tower Semiconductor shares, roughly 4 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 Tower Semiconductor.

Tower Semiconductor share dividends

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

Have Tower Semiconductor's shares ever split?

Tower Semiconductor's shares were split on a 1:15 basis on 5 August 2012. So if you had owned 15 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tower Semiconductor shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tower Semiconductor shares which in turn could have impacted Tower Semiconductor's share price.

Tower Semiconductor share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tower Semiconductor's shares have ranged in value from as little as $17.61 up to $34.45. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

TSEM.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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Tower Semiconductor's is 1.3716. This would suggest that Tower Semiconductor's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
