Is Coty under- or over-valued?

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

Coty's PEG ratio

Coty's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.8241. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

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


Coty's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$745.5 million.

  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "COTY.US"

There are currently 15.5 million Coty stocks held short by investors – that's known as Coty's "short interest". This figure is 9% down from 17.0 million last month.

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

Coty's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Coty's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Coty stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Coty stocks traded daily (recently around 7.6 million). Coty's SIR currently stands at 2.05. In other words for every 100,000 Coty stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2050 stocks are currently held short.

However Coty's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Coty stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Coty stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Coty's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Coty stocks in existence, roughly 20 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0507% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Coty stocks, roughly 51 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Coty.
