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 shares 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 shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Sanmina Corporation's EBITDA
Sanmina Corporation's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $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.

Shorting Sanmina Corporation shares
There are currently 1.7 million Sanmina Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Sanmina Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 3.8% down from 1.7 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Sanmina Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Sanmina Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Sanmina Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sanmina Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sanmina Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 300909.61887477). Sanmina Corporation's SIR currently stands at 5.51. In other words for every 100,000 Sanmina Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5510 shares are currently held short.
However Sanmina Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sanmina Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sanmina Corporation shares (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 shares (for every 100,000 Sanmina Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0261% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sanmina Corporation shares, roughly 26 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Sanmina Corporation.
Sanmina Corporation share dividends
We're not expecting Sanmina Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Sanmina Corporation's shares ever split?
Sanmina Corporation's shares 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 shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Sanmina Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Sanmina Corporation's share price.
Sanmina Corporation share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Sanmina Corporation's shares 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".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Sanmina Corporation's is 1.1254. This would suggest that Sanmina Corporation's shares 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).
