Is Vishay Intertechnology stock undervalued or overvalued?
Valuing Vishay Intertechnology stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Vishay Intertechnology's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Vishay Intertechnology's P/E ratio
Vishay Intertechnology's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Vishay Intertechnology shares trade at around 8x 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.
Vishay Intertechnology's PEG ratio
Vishay Intertechnology's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.75. 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 Vishay Intertechnology's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Vishay Intertechnology's EBITDA
Vishay Intertechnology's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $701.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Vishay Intertechnology's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Vishay Intertechnology share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 14.39% of net profits
Recently Vishay Intertechnology has paid out, on average, around 14.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Vishay Intertechnology shareholders could enjoy a 2.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Vishay Intertechnology's case, that would currently equate to about $0.395 per share.
While Vishay Intertechnology's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Vishay Intertechnology is investing more in its future growth.
Vishay Intertechnology's most recent dividend payout was on 27 September 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 September 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Vishay Intertechnology's shares ever split?
Vishay Intertechnology's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 11 June 2000. 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 Vishay Intertechnology shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Vishay Intertechnology shares which in turn could have impacted Vishay Intertechnology's share price.
Vishay Intertechnology share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Vishay Intertechnology's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.637 up to $22.3512. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Vishay Intertechnology's is 1.3204. This would suggest that Vishay Intertechnology's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
