NXP Semiconductors Shares Are Inexpensive:
Compared to the Technology sector's average of 27.16, NXP Semiconductors has a trailing twelve month P/E ratio of 15.2 and, according to its EPS guidance of 13.85, an expected P/E ratio of 11.6. NXP Semiconductors's PEG ratio is 0.22 based on its 74.7% compound 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 11.5%, because the growth rate implied by NXP Semiconductors's past and expected EPS is probably not sustainable. This more prudent approach shows a PEG ratio of 1.46, which implies that the company's shares might in fact be fairly valued.
Furthermore, NXP Semiconductors is likely undervalued in terms of its equity because its P/B ratio is 5.6 compared to its sector average of 6.23. The company's shares are currently trading 194.0% above their fair value as expressed by Benjamin Graham's formula:
√(22.5 * 4-year average EPS * book value per share) = √(22.5 * 4.59 * 28.709) = $54.45
