Is Mylan NV under- or over-valued?

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

Mylan NV's P/E ratio

Mylan NV's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 31x. In other words, Mylan NV shares trade at around 31x 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 NV's PEG ratio

Mylan NV'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 NV'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 NV's EBITDA

Mylan NV's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$3.5 billion (£2.6 billion).

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

Shorting Mylan NV shares

There are currently 47.1 million Mylan NV shares held short by investors – that's known as Mylan NV'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 NV shares can be evaluated.

Mylan NV's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

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

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

We're not expecting Mylan NV to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Mylan NV's shares ever split?

Mylan NV's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 9 October 2003. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares.
