Is Advanced Micro Devices under- or over-valued?

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

Advanced Micro Devices's P/E ratio

Advanced Micro Devices's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 126x. In other words, Advanced Micro Devices shares trade at around 126x 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.

However, Advanced Micro Devices's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the semiconductors industry or those of similar companies.

Advanced Micro Devices's PEG ratio

Advanced Micro Devices's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1577. 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 Advanced Micro Devices's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider Advanced Micro Devices's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Advanced Micro Devices's EBITDA

Advanced Micro Devices's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is a whopping $1.4 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Advanced Micro Devices's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

To put Advanced Micro Devices's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

How to short and sell Advanced Micro Devices shares

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "AMD.US"
  3. Choose your position size.
  4. Select "sell" rather than "buy".
  5. Confirm your position and keep tabs on it. You may wish to set limits on your position.

There are currently 60.7 million Advanced Micro Devices shares held short by investors – that's known as Advanced Micro Devices's "short interest". This figure is 8.4% up from 56.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Advanced Micro Devices shares can be evaluated.

Advanced Micro Devices's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Advanced Micro Devices's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Advanced Micro Devices shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Advanced Micro Devices shares traded daily (recently around 40.5 million). Advanced Micro Devices's SIR currently stands at 1.5. In other words for every 100,000 Advanced Micro Devices shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1500 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Advanced Micro Devices's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Advanced Micro Devices's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Advanced Micro Devices shares, or, against the total number of tradable Advanced Micro Devices shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Advanced Micro Devices's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Advanced Micro Devices shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0507% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Advanced Micro Devices shares, roughly 51 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Advanced Micro Devices.
