Is ChipMOS Technologies stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

ChipMOS Technologies's P/E ratio

ChipMOS Technologies's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 16x. In other words, ChipMOS Technologies shares trade at around 16x 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.

ChipMOS Technologies's PEG ratio

ChipMOS Technologies's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.13. 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 ChipMOS Technologies's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

ChipMOS Technologies's EBITDA

ChipMOS Technologies's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $6.5 billion.

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

ChipMOS Technologies share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 60.03% of net profits

Recently ChipMOS Technologies has paid out, on average, around 60.03% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ChipMOS Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 4.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ChipMOS Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about $1.8 per share.

ChipMOS Technologies's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

ChipMOS Technologies's most recent dividend payout was on 25 July 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 June 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have ChipMOS Technologies's shares ever split?

ChipMOS Technologies's shares were split on a 10000:9355 basis on 30 October 2016. So if you had owned 9355 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10000 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ChipMOS Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 6.5% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ChipMOS Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted ChipMOS Technologies's share price.

ChipMOS Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ChipMOS Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.6999 up to $30.8773. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

IMOS.US volatility(beta: 0.51)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while ChipMOS Technologies's is 0.506. This would suggest that ChipMOS Technologies's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
