Is Acorda Therapeutics under- or over-valued?

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

Acorda Therapeutics's PEG ratio

Acorda Therapeutics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.51. 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 Acorda Therapeutics'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 Acorda Therapeutics shares

There are currently 570,372 Acorda Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Acorda Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 24.7% down from 757,862 last month.

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

Acorda Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Acorda Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Acorda Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Acorda Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 138104.60048426). Acorda Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 4.13. In other words for every 100,000 Acorda Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4130 shares are currently held short.

However Acorda Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Acorda Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Acorda Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Acorda Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Acorda Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.0612% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Acorda Therapeutics shares, roughly 61 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 Acorda Therapeutics.

Have Acorda Therapeutics's shares ever split?

Acorda Therapeutics's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 3 January 2021. So if you had owned 6 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Acorda Therapeutics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Acorda Therapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Acorda Therapeutics's share price.

Acorda Therapeutics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Acorda Therapeutics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.27 up to $8.66. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ACOR.US volatility(beta: 0.58)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Acorda Therapeutics's is 0.5799. This would suggest that Acorda Therapeutics's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
