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 $142.4 million.

Shorting Tivity Health shares

There are currently 7.1 million Tivity Health shares held short by investors – that's known as Tivity Health's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% down from 7.2 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 469413.77719183). Tivity Health's SIR currently stands at 15.17. In other words for every 100,000 Tivity Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15170 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 0.14% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Tivity Health shares in existence, roughly 140 shares are currently held short) or 0.169% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Tivity Health shares, roughly 169 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.

Have Tivity Health's shares ever split?

Tivity Health's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 December 2003. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Tivity Health shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Tivity Health shares which in turn could have impacted Tivity Health's share price.

Tivity Health share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Tivity Health's shares have ranged in value from as little as $7.15 up to $25.4497. 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 Tivity Health's is 2.5168. This would suggest that Tivity Health's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
