Valuing Xilinx stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Xilinx's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Xilinx's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 46x. In other words, Xilinx shares trade at around 46x 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.
Xilinx's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.1053. 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 Xilinx's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Xilinx's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$920.4 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Xilinx's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 6.0 million Xilinx shares held short by investors – that's known as Xilinx's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% up from 5.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Xilinx shares can be evaluated.
Xilinx's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Xilinx shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Xilinx shares traded daily (recently around 1.8 million). Xilinx's SIR currently stands at 3.39. In other words for every 100,000 Xilinx shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3390 shares are currently held short.
However Xilinx's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Xilinx shares, or, against the total number of tradable Xilinx shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Xilinx's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Xilinx shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0317% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Xilinx shares, roughly 32 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 Xilinx.

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Xilinx.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 23.87
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Xilinx's overall score of 23.87 (as at 10/01/2020) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 32nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Xilinx is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Environmental score: 9.59/100
Xilinx's environmental score of 9.59 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Xilinx is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 6.88/100
Xilinx's social score of 6.88 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Xilinx is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Dividend payout ratio: 56.39% of net profits
Recently Xilinx has paid out, on average, around 56.39% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.31% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Xilinx shareholders could enjoy a 1.31% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Xilinx's case, that would currently equate to about $1.52 per share.
Xilinx's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Xilinx's most recent dividend payout was on 3 September 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Xilinx's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 December 1999. 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 Xilinx shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Xilinx shares which in turn could have impacted Xilinx's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Xilinx's shares have ranged in value from as little as $67.68 up to $123.78. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Xilinx's is 0.9592. This would suggest that Xilinx's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
