Is Avantor under- or over-valued?

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

Avantor's P/E ratio

Avantor's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 85x. In other words, Avantor shares trade at around 85x 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.

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

Shorting Avantor shares

There are currently 16.4 million Avantor shares held short by investors – that's known as Avantor's "short interest". This figure is 8.6% down from 18.0 million last month.

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

Avantor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Avantor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Avantor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Avantor shares traded daily (recently around 4.8 million). Avantor's SIR currently stands at 3.43. In other words for every 100,000 Avantor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3430 shares are currently held short.

However Avantor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Avantor shares, or, against the total number of tradable Avantor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Avantor's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Avantor shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0283% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Avantor shares, roughly 28 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 Avantor.

AVTR.US volatility(beta: 1.69)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Avantor's is 1.6868. This would suggest that Avantor's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
