Is Plexus under- or over-valued?
Valuing Plexus stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Plexus's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Plexus's P/E ratio
Plexus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, Plexus stocks trade at around 18x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the stocks or simply that they're under-valued.
Plexus's PEG ratio
Plexus's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.61. 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 Plexus's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Plexus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$247.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Plexus's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

There are currently 720,301 Plexus stocks held short by investors – that's known as Plexus's "short interest". This figure is 6.4% up from 677,149 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Plexus stocks can be evaluated.
Plexus's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Plexus's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Plexus stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Plexus stocks traded daily (recently around 82132.383124287). Plexus's SIR currently stands at 8.77. In other words for every 100,000 Plexus stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 8770 stocks are currently held short.
However Plexus's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Plexus stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Plexus stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Plexus's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Plexus stocks in existence, roughly 30 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0261% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Plexus stocks, roughly 26 stocks are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Plexus.

Have Plexus stocks ever split?
Plexus stocks were split on a 2:1 basis on 1 September 2000. 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 Plexus stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Plexus stocks which in turn could have impacted Plexus's stock price.
Plexus stock price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Plexus's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $67.54 up to $101.17. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Plexus's is 1.1927. This would suggest that Plexus'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).
