Is Livongo Health under- or over-valued?

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

Livongo Health's PEG ratio

Livongo Health's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.9675. 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 Livongo 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.

Shorting Livongo Health shares

There are currently 8.2 million Livongo Health shares held short by investors – that's known as Livongo Health's "short interest". This figure is 17.8% down from 10.0 million last month.

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

Livongo Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Livongo Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Livongo Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Livongo Health shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). Livongo Health's SIR currently stands at 4.27. In other words for every 100,000 Livongo Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4270 shares are currently held short.

However Livongo Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Livongo Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable Livongo Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Livongo Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Livongo Health shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1807% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Livongo Health shares, roughly 181 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Livongo Health.
