Is Materion Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Materion Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Materion Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Materion Corporation's P/E ratio
Materion Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 30x. In other words, Materion Corporation stocks trade at around 30x 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.
Materion Corporation's PEG ratio
Materion Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.35. 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 Materion Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Materion Corporation's EBITDA
Materion Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$107.7 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Materion Corporation's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 355,930 Materion Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as Materion Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 4.2% down from 371,534 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Materion Corporation stocks can be evaluated.
Materion Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Materion Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Materion Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Materion Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 100545.19774011). Materion Corporation's SIR currently stands at 3.54. In other words for every 100,000 Materion Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 3540 stocks are currently held short.
However Materion Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Materion Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Materion Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Materion Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Materion Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0175% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Materion Corporation stocks, roughly 18 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 Materion Corporation.

Materion Corporation stock dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 16.04% of net profits
Recently Materion Corporation has paid out, on average, around 16.04% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.67% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Materion Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 0.67% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Materion Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.465 per share.
While Materion Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Materion Corporation is investing more in its future growth.
Materion Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 3 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their stocks by 19 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Materion Corporation stocks ever split?
Materion Corporation stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 25 June 1984. 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 Materion Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Materion Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted Materion Corporation's stock price.
Materion Corporation stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Materion Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $49.159 up to $80.4381. 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 Materion Corporation's is 1.4378. This would suggest that Materion Corporation's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
