Is Benchmark Electronics under- or over-valued?

Benchmark Electronics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 53x. In other words, Benchmark Electronics stocks trade at around 53x 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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.
Benchmark Electronics's PEG ratio
Benchmark Electronics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.91. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Benchmark Electronics's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 757,454 Benchmark Electronics stocks held short by investors – that's known as Benchmark Electronics's "short interest". This figure is 2.2% up from 741,044 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Benchmark Electronics stocks can be evaluated.
Benchmark Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Benchmark Electronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Benchmark Electronics stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Benchmark Electronics stocks traded daily (recently around 204165.49865229). Benchmark Electronics's SIR currently stands at 3.71. In other words for every 100,000 Benchmark Electronics stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3710 stocks are currently held short.
However Benchmark Electronics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Benchmark Electronics stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Benchmark Electronics stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Benchmark Electronics's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Benchmark Electronics stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0214% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Benchmark Electronics stocks, roughly 21 stocks are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Benchmark Electronics.

Benchmark Electronics stock dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 74.14% of net profits
Recently Benchmark Electronics has paid out, on average, around 74.14% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.61% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Benchmark Electronics shareholders could enjoy a 2.61% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Benchmark Electronics's case, that would currently equate to about $0.64 per share.
Benchmark Electronics'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.
Benchmark Electronics's most recent dividend payout was on 13 July 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 28 June 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Benchmark Electronics stocks ever split?
Benchmark Electronics stocks were split on a 3:2 basis on 3 April 2006. 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 Benchmark Electronics stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Benchmark Electronics stocks which in turn could have impacted Benchmark Electronics's stock price.
Benchmark Electronics stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Benchmark Electronics's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $18.2898 up to $32.3747. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Benchmark Electronics's is 1.1632. This would suggest that Benchmark Electronics's stocks 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).
