Is Jaguar Health under- or over-valued?

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

Jaguar Health's P/E ratio

Jaguar Health's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 0x. In other words, Jaguar Health shares trade at around 0x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Shorting Jaguar Health shares

There are currently 380,248 Jaguar Health shares held short by investors – that's known as Jaguar Health's "short interest". This figure is 68.1% down from 1.2 million last month.

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

Jaguar Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Jaguar Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Jaguar Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Jaguar Health shares traded daily (recently around 5.4 million). Jaguar Health's SIR currently stands at 0.07. In other words for every 100,000 Jaguar Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 70 shares are currently held short.

However Jaguar Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Jaguar Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable Jaguar Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Jaguar Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Jaguar Health shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0078% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Jaguar Health shares, roughly 8 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 Jaguar Health.

Jaguar Health share dividends

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

Have Jaguar Health's shares ever split?

Jaguar Health's shares were split on a 1:70 basis on 7 June 2019. So if you had owned 70 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Jaguar Health shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 6900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Jaguar Health shares which in turn could have impacted Jaguar Health's share price.

Jaguar Health share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Jaguar Health's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.284 up to $0.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

JAGX.US volatility(beta: 0.93)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Jaguar Health's is 0.9307. This would suggest that Jaguar Health's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
