Is Premier under- or over-valued?
Valuing Premier stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Premier's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Premier's P/E ratio
Premier's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 17x. In other words, Premier shares trade at around 17x 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.
Premier's PEG ratio
Premier's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.5957. 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 Premier's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Premier's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $406.3 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Premier's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$1.6 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||17.59%|
|Gross profit TTM||$866.8 million|

Shorting Premier shares
There are currently 2.5 million Premier shares held short by investors – that's known as Premier's "short interest". This figure is 11.6% down from 2.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Premier shares can be evaluated.
Premier's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Premier's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Premier shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Premier shares traded daily (recently around 577538.72437358). Premier's SIR currently stands at 4.39. In other words for every 100,000 Premier shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4390 shares are currently held short.
However Premier's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Premier shares, or, against the total number of tradable Premier shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Premier's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Premier shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0209% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Premier shares, roughly 21 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 Premier.

Premier share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 29.46% of net profits
Recently Premier has paid out, on average, around 29.46% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.13% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Premier shareholders could enjoy a 2.13% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Premier's case, that would currently equate to about $0.57 per share.
While Premier's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Premier may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
Premier's most recent dividend payout was on 14 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 May 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Premier share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Premier's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.3444 up to $37.2234. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Premier's is 0.2432. This would suggest that Premier's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
