Is HealthEquity under- or over-valued?

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

HealthEquity's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.9243. A PEG ratio over 1 can be interpreted as meaning shares are overvalued at the current rate of growth, or may anticipate an acceleration in growth.

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


HealthEquity's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $178 million (£0.0 million).
