Is AMAG Pharmaceuticals under- or over-valued?

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

AMAG Pharmaceuticals's PEG ratio

AMAG Pharmaceuticals's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.32. 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 AMAG Pharmaceuticals'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 AMAG Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 6.3 million AMAG Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as AMAG Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 13% down from 7.2 million last month.

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

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

AMAG Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of AMAG Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of AMAG Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 3.4 million). AMAG Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 1.83. In other words for every 100,000 AMAG Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1830 shares are currently held short.

However AMAG Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of AMAG Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable AMAG Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case AMAG Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 AMAG Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.3803% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable AMAG Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 380 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 AMAG Pharmaceuticals.

Have AMAG Pharmaceuticals's shares ever split?

AMAG Pharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 25 September 1991. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your AMAG Pharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for AMAG Pharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted AMAG Pharmaceuticals's share price.

AMAG Pharmaceuticals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, AMAG Pharmaceuticals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.87 up to $13.77. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMAG.US volatility(beta: 0.87)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 AMAG Pharmaceuticals's is 0.8675. This would suggest that AMAG Pharmaceuticals's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
