Is Power Integrations stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Power Integrations's P/E ratio

Power Integrations's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 78x. In other words, Power Integrations shares trade at around 78x 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.

Power Integrations's PEG ratio

Power Integrations's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7. 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 Power Integrations's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Power Integrations's EBITDA

Power Integrations's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $66.9 million.

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

Power Integrations share dividends

65%

Dividend payout ratio: 64.75% of net profits

Recently Power Integrations has paid out, on average, around 64.75% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.11% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Power Integrations shareholders could enjoy a 1.11% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Power Integrations's case, that would currently equate to about $0.78 per share.

Power Integrations'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.

Power Integrations's most recent dividend payout was on 27 June 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 30 May 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Power Integrations's shares ever split?

Power Integrations's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 18 August 2020. 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 Power Integrations shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Power Integrations shares which in turn could have impacted Power Integrations's share price.

Power Integrations share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Power Integrations's shares have ranged in value from as little as $61.9607 up to $96.3616. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

POWI.US volatility(beta: 1.11)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 Power Integrations's is 1.105. This would suggest that Power Integrations'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).
