Is LifeVantage Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

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 LifeVantage Corporation shares

There are currently 785,993 LifeVantage Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as LifeVantage Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% down from 792,215 last month.

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

LifeVantage Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

LifeVantage Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of LifeVantage Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of LifeVantage Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 75503.650336215). LifeVantage Corporation's SIR currently stands at 10.41. In other words for every 100,000 LifeVantage Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10410 shares are currently held short.

However LifeVantage Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of LifeVantage Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable LifeVantage Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case LifeVantage Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 LifeVantage Corporation shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0596% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable LifeVantage Corporation shares, roughly 60 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against LifeVantage Corporation.

However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for LifeVantage Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted LifeVantage Corporation's share price.
