Is Zimmer Biomet under- or over-valued?

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

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.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Zimmer Biomet's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Zimmer Biomet shares

There are currently 2.9 million Zimmer Biomet shares held short by investors – that's known as Zimmer Biomet's "short interest". This figure is 18.3% up from 2.4 million last month.

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

Zimmer Biomet's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Zimmer Biomet's SIR currently stands at 1.83. In other words for every 100,000 Zimmer Biomet shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1830 shares are currently held short.

However Zimmer Biomet's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Zimmer Biomet shares, or, against the total number of tradable Zimmer Biomet shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Zimmer Biomet's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Zimmer Biomet shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0137% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Zimmer Biomet shares, roughly 14 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 Zimmer Biomet.
