Is Xilinx under- or over-valued?
Valuing Xilinx stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Xilinx's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Xilinx's P/E ratio
Xilinx's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 62x. In other words, Xilinx shares trade at around 62x 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.
Xilinx's PEG ratio
Xilinx's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.7504. 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 Xilinx's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Xilinx's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $1 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Xilinx's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Xilinx's environmental, social and governance track record
Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Xilinx.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Xilinx's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 23.87
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Xilinx's overall score of 23.87 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 32nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Xilinx is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).
Xilinx's environmental score
Environmental score: 9.59/100
Xilinx's environmental score of 9.59 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Xilinx is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Xilinx's social score
Social score: 6.88/100
Xilinx's social score of 6.88 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Xilinx is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Xilinx's governance score
Governance score: 11.91/100
Xilinx's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Xilinx is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Xilinx share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 10.25% of net profits
Recently Xilinx has paid out, on average, around 10.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.75% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Xilinx shareholders could enjoy a 0.75% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Xilinx's case, that would currently equate to about $0.38 per share.
While Xilinx's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Xilinx is investing more in its future growth.
Xilinx's most recent dividend payout was on 15 November 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Xilinx's shares ever split?
Xilinx's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 28 December 1999. 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 Xilinx shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Xilinx shares which in turn could have impacted Xilinx's share price.
Xilinx share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Xilinx's shares have ranged in value from as little as $111.6311 up to $239.79. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
