Is Microchip Technology stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Microchip Technology's P/E ratio

Microchip Technology's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 28x. In other words, Microchip Technology shares trade at around 28x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Microchip Technology's PEG ratio

Microchip Technology's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 8.4652. 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 Microchip Technology's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Microchip Technology's EBITDA

Microchip Technology's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.4 billion.

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

Microchip Technology share dividends

36%

Dividend payout ratio: 35.66% of net profits

Recently Microchip Technology has paid out, on average, around 35.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.88% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Microchip Technology shareholders could enjoy a 1.88% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Microchip Technology's case, that would currently equate to about $1.682 per share.

While Microchip Technology's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Microchip Technology may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Microchip Technology's most recent dividend payout was on 4 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 20 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Microchip Technology's shares ever split?

Microchip Technology's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 October 2021. 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 Microchip Technology shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Microchip Technology shares which in turn could have impacted Microchip Technology's share price.

Microchip Technology share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Microchip Technology's shares have ranged in value from as little as $67.7063 up to $100.565. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

MCHP.US volatility(beta: 1.54)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 Microchip Technology's is 1.538. This would suggest that Microchip Technology's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
