Is Agios Pharmaceuticals under- or over-valued?

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

Agios Pharmaceuticals's P/E ratio

Agios Pharmaceuticals's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 2x. In other words, Agios Pharmaceuticals shares trade at around 2x recent earnings.

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Shorting Agios Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 6.2 million Agios Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Agios Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 8.6% up from 5.7 million last month.

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

Agios Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Agios Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Agios Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Agios Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 411083.52084712). Agios Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 15.11. In other words for every 100,000 Agios Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15110 shares are currently held short.

However Agios Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Agios Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Agios Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Agios Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Agios Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 110 shares are currently held short) or 0.1066% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Agios Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 107 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 Agios Pharmaceuticals.
