Is Viatris under- or over-valued?
Valuing Viatris stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Viatris's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Viatris's P/E ratio
Viatris's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Viatris shares trade at around 31x 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.
Viatris's PEG ratio
Viatris's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.59. 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 Viatris's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Viatris's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $3.5 billion.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Viatris's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Viatris shares
There are currently 47.1 million Viatris shares held short by investors – that's known as Viatris's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% up from 46.5 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Viatris shares can be evaluated.
Viatris's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Viatris's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Viatris shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Viatris shares traded daily (recently around 4.2 million). Viatris's SIR currently stands at 11.15. In other words for every 100,000 Viatris shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11150 shares are currently held short.
However Viatris's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Viatris shares, or, against the total number of tradable Viatris shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Viatris's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Viatris shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1105% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Viatris shares, roughly 111 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 Viatris.

Have Viatris's shares ever split?
Viatris's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 8 October 2003. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares.

However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Viatris shares which in turn could have impacted Viatris's share price.
