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

Adaptimmune Therapeutics's PEG ratio

Adaptimmune Therapeutics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.11. 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.

Shorting Adaptimmune Therapeutics shares

There are currently 1.4 million Adaptimmune Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Adaptimmune Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 8.1% up from 1.3 million last month.

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

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

Adaptimmune Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Adaptimmune Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Adaptimmune Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Adaptimmune Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 1.11. In other words for every 100,000 Adaptimmune Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1110 shares are currently held short.

However Adaptimmune Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Adaptimmune Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Adaptimmune Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Adaptimmune Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Adaptimmune Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Adaptimmune Therapeutics shares, roughly 0 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 Adaptimmune Therapeutics.
