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

Aduro Biotech's PEG ratio

Aduro Biotech's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.06. 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 Aduro Biotech shares

There are currently 3.2 million Aduro Biotech shares held short by investors – that's known as Aduro Biotech's "short interest". This figure is 2.7% down from 3.3 million last month.

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

Aduro Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Aduro Biotech's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aduro Biotech shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aduro Biotech shares traded daily (recently around 688870.17167382). Aduro Biotech's SIR currently stands at 4.66. In other words for every 100,000 Aduro Biotech shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4660 shares are currently held short.

However Aduro Biotech's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aduro Biotech shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aduro Biotech shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aduro Biotech's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aduro Biotech shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0486% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aduro Biotech shares, roughly 49 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 Aduro Biotech.

However, indirectly, the new 400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Aduro Biotech shares which in turn could have impacted Aduro Biotech's share price.
