Skyworks stock has increased about 14% year-over-year and is up 25% since bottoming out at a 52-week low of $134.28 last November. However, shares of SWKS have grown 10% year-to-date and have shed 17% from its all-time high of $164.06 reached in April.

Those looking to join the SWKS bandwagon can do so at a steal right now. Skyworks stock's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 28% sits higher than just 21% of readings from the past 12 months, suggesting options players are pricing in low volatility expectations for the stock at the moment. 

From a fundamental point of view, Skyworks stock does not offer the greatest security or consistency, with the company’s top- and bottom-lines declining on an annual basis between fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2020. However, SWKS has managed to improve greatly over the past 12 months. In addition, Skyworks stock has a decent forward price-earnings ratio of 14.24, which is a considerable improvement on its current price-earnings ratio of 18.29. Overall, SWKS has potential to return to its previous highs in the coming year as Skyworks stock’s valuation begins to price-in the company’s boost in revenues and net income.
