Texas Instruments Is Reasonably Priced:
Compared to the Technology sector's average of 26.5, Texas Instruments has a trailing twelve month P/E ratio of 19.4 and, according to its EPS guidance of 8.47, an expected P/E ratio of 21.5. Texas Instruments's PEG ratio is 1.38 based on its 14.0% annual average growth rate of historical and projected earnings per share. However, we believe that it is more prudent to calculate the PEG ratio using the broader market's 5-year expected EPS growth rate of 13.05%, because the growth rate implied by Texas Instruments's past and expected EPS is probably not sustainable. This more prudent approach shows a PEG ratio of 1.48, which implies that the company's shares might in fact be fairly valued.
Texas Instruments's P/B ratio is 11.3 compared to its sector average of 5.57. The company is likely overvalued in terms of its equity. The company's shares are currently trading 256.5% above their fair value as expressed by Benjamin Graham's formula:
√(22.5 * 4-year average EPS * book value per share) = √(22.5 * 7.22 * 16.089) = $51.12
Texas Instruments's elevated P/B ratio notwithstanding, the company's strong cash flows, decent earnings multiple, and healthy debt levels factor towards it being fairly valued.
