Is eHealth under- or over-valued?

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

eHealth's P/E ratio

eHealth's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 37x. In other words, eHealth shares trade at around 37x 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.

eHealth's PEG ratio

eHealth's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.7211. 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 eHealth's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

eHealth's EBITDA

eHealth's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $59.2 million.

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

Shorting eHealth shares

There are currently 1.8 million eHealth shares held short by investors – that's known as eHealth's "short interest". This figure is 0.2% up from 1.8 million last month.

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

eHealth's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

eHealth's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of eHealth shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of eHealth shares traded daily (recently around 318174.3545611). eHealth's SIR currently stands at 5.81. In other words for every 100,000 eHealth shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5810 shares are currently held short.

However eHealth's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of eHealth shares, or, against the total number of tradable eHealth shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case eHealth's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 eHealth shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.0853% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable eHealth shares, roughly 85 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 eHealth.

eHealth share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, eHealth's shares have ranged in value from as little as $48.54 up to $94.41. 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 (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while eHealth's is -0.1649. This would suggest that eHealth's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, eHealth has bucked the trend.
