Is FormFactor under- or over-valued?

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

FormFactor's P/E ratio

FormFactor'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, FormFactor 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.

FormFactor's PEG ratio

FormFactor's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.71. 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 FormFactor's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

FormFactor's EBITDA

FormFactor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $143.5 million.

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

FormFactor share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, FormFactor's shares have ranged in value from as little as $32.69 up to $52.388. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

FORM.US volatility(beta: 1.31)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 FormFactor's is 1.3122. This would suggest that FormFactor's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
