Growth is probably the most important factor in the valuation of a company. GuruFocus research has found that growth is closely correlated with the long term stock performance of a company. A faster growing company creates more value for shareholders, especially if the growth is profitable. The 3-year average annual revenue growth of Dialog Semiconductor PLC is 9.4%, which ranks better than 68% of the companies in Semiconductors industry. The 3-year average EBITDA growth rate is 9.1%, which ranks in the middle range of the companies in Semiconductors industry.

Another method of determining the profitability of a company is to compare its return on invested capital to the weighted average cost of capital. Return on invested capital (ROIC) measures how well a company generates cash flow relative to the capital it has invested in its business. The weighted average cost of capital (WACC) is the rate that a company is expected to pay on average to all its security holders to finance its assets. When the ROIC is higher than the WACC, it implies the company is creating value for shareholders. For the past 12 months, Dialog Semiconductor PLC's return on invested capital is 8.34, and its cost of capital is 9.43. The historical ROIC vs WACC comparison of Dialog Semiconductor PLC is shown below:
