Is Sanmina Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

Sanmina Corporation's P/E ratio

Sanmina 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 10x. In other words, Sanmina Corporation stocks trade at around 10x 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.

Sanmina Corporation's EBITDA

Sanmina Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$426.8 million.

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

How to short and sell Sanmina Corporation stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "SANM.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 1.9 million Sanmina Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as Sanmina Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% down from 2.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sanmina Corporation stocks can be evaluated.

Sanmina Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sanmina Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sanmina Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sanmina Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 241923.5443038). Sanmina Corporation's SIR currently stands at 7.9. In other words for every 100,000 Sanmina Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 7900 stocks are currently held short.

However Sanmina Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sanmina Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Sanmina Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sanmina Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Sanmina Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 30 stocks are currently held short) or 0.03% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Sanmina Corporation stocks, roughly 30 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 Sanmina Corporation.

Have Sanmina Corporation stocks ever split?

Sanmina Corporation stocks were split on a 1:6 basis on 17 August 2009. So if you had owned 6 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Sanmina Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Sanmina Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted Sanmina Corporation's stock price.

Sanmina Corporation stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sanmina Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $23.8 up to $43.36. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SANM.US volatility(beta: 1.13)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Sanmina Corporation's is 1.1326. This would suggest that Sanmina Corporation'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).
