Is Lululemon Athletica under- or over-valued?

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

Lululemon Athletica's P/E ratio

Lululemon Athletica's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 68x. In other words, Lululemon Athletica stocks trade at around 68x recent earnings.

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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.

Lululemon Athletica's PEG ratio

Lululemon Athletica's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.3706. 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 Lululemon Athletica's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the stock prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 1.8 million Lululemon Athletica stocks held short by investors – that's known as Lululemon Athletica's "short interest". This figure is 3.4% down from 1.8 million last month.

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

Lululemon Athletica's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Lululemon Athletica's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Lululemon Athletica stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Lululemon Athletica stocks traded daily (recently around 620909.54063604). Lululemon Athletica's SIR currently stands at 2.83. In other words for every 100,000 Lululemon Athletica stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 2830 stocks are currently held short.

However Lululemon Athletica's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Lululemon Athletica stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Lululemon Athletica stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Lululemon Athletica's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Lululemon Athletica stocks in existence, roughly 10 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0147% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Lululemon Athletica stocks, roughly 15 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 Lululemon Athletica.
