Is Xilinx under- or over-valued?
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 P/E ratio
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 56x. In other words, Xilinx shares trade at around 56x 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 PEG ratio
Xilinx's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 3.3243. 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 $939.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Xilinx's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$3.1 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||23.93%|
|Gross profit TTM||$2.2 billion|

Shorting Xilinx shares
There are currently 10.6 million Xilinx shares held short by investors – that's known as Xilinx's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% down from 10.6 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)
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 2.1 million). Xilinx's SIR currently stands at 5.1. In other words for every 100,000 Xilinx shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5100 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 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Xilinx shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0441% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Xilinx shares, roughly 44 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Xilinx.

Xilinx share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 31.4% of net profits
Recently Xilinx has paid out, on average, around 31.4% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.16% 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 1.16% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Xilinx's case, that would currently equate to about $1.14 per share.
While Xilinx's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Xilinx may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Xilinx's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 November 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Xilinx's shares ever split?
Xilinx's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 27 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.
Xilinx share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Xilinx's shares have ranged in value from as little as $96.436 up to $154.93. 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 1.0125. This would suggest that Xilinx'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).
