Is Magellan Health under- or over-valued?

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

Magellan Health's P/E ratio

Magellan 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 6x. In other words, Magellan Health shares trade at around 6x 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.

Magellan Health's PEG ratio

Magellan Health's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.93. 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 Magellan Health's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Magellan Health's EBITDA

Magellan Health's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $107.9 million.

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

Shorting Magellan Health shares

There are currently 2.1 million Magellan Health shares held short by investors – that's known as Magellan Health's "short interest". This figure is 3.9% up from 2.0 million last month.

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

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

Magellan Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Magellan Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Magellan Health shares traded daily (recently around 220317.0235546). Magellan Health's SIR currently stands at 9.34. In other words for every 100,000 Magellan Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9340 shares are currently held short.

However Magellan Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Magellan Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable Magellan Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Magellan Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Magellan Health shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.0933% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Magellan Health shares, roughly 93 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 Magellan Health.

MGLN.US volatility(beta: 1.21)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 Magellan Health's is 1.2127. This would suggest that Magellan Health's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
