Is Mylan under- or over-valued?

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

Mylan's P/E ratio

Mylan's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 33x. In other words, Mylan shares trade at around 33x 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 shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Mylan's PEG ratio

Mylan's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.59. 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 Mylan's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Mylan's EBITDA

Mylan's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$3.5 billion.

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

Shorting Mylan shares

There are currently 47.1 million Mylan shares held short by investors – that's known as Mylan's "short interest". This figure is 1.4% up from 46.5 million last month.

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

Mylan's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Mylan's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Mylan shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Mylan shares traded daily (recently around 4.2 million). Mylan's SIR currently stands at 11.15. In other words for every 100,000 Mylan shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11150 shares are currently held short.

However Mylan's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Mylan shares, or, against the total number of tradable Mylan shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Mylan's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Mylan shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1105% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Mylan shares, roughly 111 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 Mylan.
