Is NuVasive under- or over-valued?

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

NuVasive's P/E ratio

NuVasive's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1599x. In other words, NuVasive shares trade at around 1599x 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.

NuVasive's PEG ratio

NuVasive's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.4027. 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 NuVasive's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

NuVasive's EBITDA

NuVasive's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $233.3 million.

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

Shorting NuVasive shares

There are currently 4.4 million NuVasive shares held short by investors – that's known as NuVasive's "short interest". This figure is 8.2% up from 4.0 million last month.

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

NuVasive's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

NuVasive's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of NuVasive shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of NuVasive shares traded daily (recently around 712686.34146341). NuVasive's SIR currently stands at 6.15. In other words for every 100,000 NuVasive shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6150 shares are currently held short.

However NuVasive's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of NuVasive shares, or, against the total number of tradable NuVasive shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case NuVasive's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 NuVasive shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1141% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable NuVasive shares, roughly 114 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 NuVasive.

This would suggest that NuVasive's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
