Is Qorvo under- or over-valued?

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

Qorvo's P/E ratio

Qorvo's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 29x. In other words, Qorvo shares trade at around 29x 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.

Qorvo's PEG ratio

Qorvo's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5923. 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 Qorvo's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Qorvo's EBITDA

Qorvo's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$1.4 billion.

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

Shorting Qorvo shares

There are currently 2.8 million Qorvo shares held short by investors – that's known as Qorvo's "short interest". This figure is 7.9% up from 2.6 million last month.

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

Qorvo's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Qorvo's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Qorvo shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Qorvo shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Qorvo's SIR currently stands at 1.95. In other words for every 100,000 Qorvo shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1950 shares are currently held short.

However Qorvo's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Qorvo shares, or, against the total number of tradable Qorvo shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Qorvo's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Qorvo shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0246% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Qorvo shares, roughly 25 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 Qorvo.

Qorvo share dividends

We're not expecting Qorvo to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Qorvo's shares ever split?

Qorvo's shares were split on a 1:4 basis on 1 January 2015. So if you had owned 4 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Qorvo shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 300% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Qorvo shares which in turn could have impacted Qorvo's share price.

Qorvo share price volatility

QRVO.US volatility(beta: 1.39)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 Qorvo's is 1.388. This would suggest that Qorvo's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
