Is BrightView under- or over-valued?

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

BrightView's PEG ratio

BrightView's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 4.04. 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 BrightView's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

BrightView's EBITDA

BrightView's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $221.9 million.

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

Shorting BrightView shares

There are currently 2.3 million BrightView shares held short by investors – that's known as BrightView's "short interest". This figure is 4.5% up from 2.2 million last month.

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

BrightView's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

BrightView's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BrightView shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BrightView shares traded daily (recently around 167204.39164867). BrightView's SIR currently stands at 13.89. In other words for every 100,000 BrightView shares traded daily on the market, roughly 13890 shares are currently held short.

However BrightView's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BrightView shares, or, against the total number of tradable BrightView shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BrightView's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BrightView shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0576% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BrightView shares, roughly 58 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against BrightView.

BrightView share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BrightView's shares have ranged in value from as little as $10.93 up to $19.17. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BV.US volatility(beta: 1.45)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 BrightView's is 1.4544. This would suggest that BrightView's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
