Is DaVita under- or over-valued?

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

DaVita's P/E ratio

DaVita's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 14x. In other words, DaVita shares trade at around 14x 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.

DaVita's PEG ratio

DaVita's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9728. 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 DaVita's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


DaVita's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2.4 billion.

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

DaVita's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like DaVita.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

DaVita's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 20.07

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and DaVita's overall score of 20.07 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 24th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like DaVita is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

DaVita's environmental score

Environmental score: 2.6/100

DaVita's environmental score of 2.6 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that DaVita is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

DaVita's social score

Social score: 10.68/100

DaVita's social score of 10.68 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that DaVita is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

DaVita's governance score

Governance score: 7.8/100

DaVita's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that DaVita is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

DaVita's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. DaVita scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that DaVita has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

DaVita share dividends

We're not expecting DaVita to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have DaVita's shares ever split?

DaVita's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 9 September 2013. 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 DaVita shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for DaVita shares which in turn could have impacted DaVita's share price.

DaVita share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, DaVita's shares have ranged in value from as little as $94.38 up to $136.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DVA.US volatility(beta: 1.24)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while DaVita's is 1.2377. This would suggest that DaVita's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
