Coty's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.6802. 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.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 21.8 million Coty shares held short by investors – that's known as Coty's "short interest". This figure is 1.1% up from 21.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Coty shares can be evaluated.
Coty's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Coty shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Coty shares traded daily (recently around 18.8 million). Coty's SIR currently stands at 1.16. In other words for every 100,000 Coty shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1160 shares are currently held short.
However Coty's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Coty shares, or, against the total number of tradable Coty shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Coty's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Coty shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0469% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Coty shares, roughly 47 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 Coty.

We're not expecting Coty to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Over the last 12 months, Coty's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.65 up to $13.42. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Coty's is 1.1434.
