Is Magellan Health 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.

P/E ratio

Magellan Health's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 8x. In other words, Magellan Health shares trade at around 8x 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.

PEG ratio

Magellan Health's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.93. A PEG ratio below 1 can be interpreted as meaning the shares are not overvalued given the current rate of growth.

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


Magellan Health's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $86.8 million (£0.0 million).

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