Is Change Healthcare under- or over-valued?

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

Change Healthcare's PEG ratio

Change Healthcare's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 853.4622. 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.

Shorting Change Healthcare shares

There are currently 16.8 million Change Healthcare shares held short by investors – that's known as Change Healthcare's "short interest". This figure is 29.8% down from 23.9 million last month.

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

Change Healthcare's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Change Healthcare's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Change Healthcare shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Change Healthcare shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). Change Healthcare's SIR currently stands at 6.62. In other words for every 100,000 Change Healthcare shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6620 shares are currently held short.

However Change Healthcare's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Change Healthcare shares, or, against the total number of tradable Change Healthcare shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Change Healthcare's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Change Healthcare shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0681% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Change Healthcare shares, roughly 68 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Change Healthcare.
