Is Bioventus under- or over-valued?

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

Bioventus's P/E ratio

Bioventus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 38x. In other words, Bioventus shares trade at around 38x 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.

However, Bioventus's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the diagnostics & research industry or those of similar companies.

Bioventus's PEG ratio

Bioventus's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.4792. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Bioventus's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

However, it's sensible to consider Bioventus's PEG ratio in relation to those of similar companies.

Bioventus's EBITDA

Bioventus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $55.1 million.

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

To put Bioventus's EBITDA into context you can compare it against that of similar companies.

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

Bioventus's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bioventus's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bioventus shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bioventus shares traded daily (recently around 154695.08196721). Bioventus's SIR currently stands at 2.44. In other words for every 100,000 Bioventus shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2440 shares are currently held short.

To gain some more context, you can compare Bioventus's short interest ratio against those of similar companies.

However Bioventus's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bioventus shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bioventus shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bioventus's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bioventus shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0475% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bioventus shares, roughly 48 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 Bioventus.
