Is MEDNAX under- or over-valued?

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

MEDNAX's PEG ratio

MEDNAX's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.88. 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.

Shorting MEDNAX shares

There are currently 2.1 million MEDNAX shares held short by investors – that's known as MEDNAX's "short interest". This figure is 52% down from 4.4 million last month.

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

MEDNAX's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MEDNAX's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MEDNAX shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MEDNAX shares traded daily (recently around 560361.7414248). MEDNAX's SIR currently stands at 3.79. In other words for every 100,000 MEDNAX shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3790 shares are currently held short.

However MEDNAX's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MEDNAX shares, or, against the total number of tradable MEDNAX shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MEDNAX's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MEDNAX shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0281% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MEDNAX shares, roughly 28 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 MEDNAX.
