Is SelectQuote under- or over-valued?

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

SelectQuote's P/E ratio

SelectQuote's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 34x. In other words, SelectQuote shares trade at around 34x 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.

SelectQuote's EBITDA

SelectQuote's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $223.3 million.

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

Shorting SelectQuote shares

There are currently 6.4 million SelectQuote shares held short by investors – that's known as SelectQuote's "short interest". This figure is 15% up from 5.6 million last month.

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

SelectQuote's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SelectQuote's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SelectQuote shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SelectQuote shares traded daily (recently around 2.8 million). SelectQuote's SIR currently stands at 2.26. In other words for every 100,000 SelectQuote shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2260 shares are currently held short.

However SelectQuote's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of SelectQuote shares, or, against the total number of tradable SelectQuote shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case SelectQuote's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SelectQuote shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0518% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SelectQuote shares, roughly 52 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 SelectQuote.
