Is CryoLife under- or over-valued?

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

CryoLife's PEG ratio

CryoLife's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 420.8333. 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 CryoLife's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

CryoLife's EBITDA

CryoLife's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $40.2 million.

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

Shorting CryoLife shares

There are currently 3.4 million CryoLife shares held short by investors – that's known as CryoLife's "short interest". This figure is 3.5% down from 3.5 million last month.

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

CryoLife's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

CryoLife's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CryoLife shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CryoLife shares traded daily (recently around 152443.46463742). CryoLife's SIR currently stands at 22.34. In other words for every 100,000 CryoLife shares traded daily on the market, roughly 22340 shares are currently held short.

However CryoLife's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CryoLife shares, or, against the total number of tradable CryoLife shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CryoLife's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CryoLife shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1089% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CryoLife shares, roughly 109 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 20% would generally be considered very high, pointing to a pessimistic outlook for the share price, with a discouraging number of investors currently willing to bet against CryoLife.

CryoLife share dividends

We're not expecting CryoLife to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have CryoLife's shares ever split?

CryoLife's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 27 December 2000. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your CryoLife shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for CryoLife shares which in turn could have impacted CryoLife's share price.

CryoLife share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, CryoLife's shares have ranged in value from as little as $16.6 up to $32.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CRY.US volatility(beta: 1.57)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 CryoLife's is 1.5688. This would suggest that CryoLife's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
