Is Tivity Health under- or over-valued?

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

Tivity Health's P/E ratio

Tivity Health's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 9x. In other words, Tivity Health shares trade at around 9x 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.

Tivity Health's PEG ratio

Tivity Health's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.662. 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 Tivity Health's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Tivity Health's EBITDA

Tivity Health's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$226.4 million.

Shorting Tivity Health shares

There are currently 7.4 million Tivity Health shares held short by investors – that's known as Tivity Health's "short interest". This figure is 3% up from 7.1 million last month.

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

Tivity Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Tivity Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Tivity Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Tivity Health shares traded daily (recently around 633762.84482759). Tivity Health's SIR currently stands at 11.6. In other words for every 100,000 Tivity Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11600 shares are currently held short.

However Tivity Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Tivity Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable Tivity Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Tivity Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tivity Health shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.2729% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tivity Health shares, roughly 273 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 Tivity Health.
