Is Amarin Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

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

Shorting Amarin Corporation shares

There are currently 26.0 million Amarin Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Amarin Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 16.7% up from 22.3 million last month.

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

Amarin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Amarin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Amarin Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Amarin Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 5.7 million). Amarin Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.58. In other words for every 100,000 Amarin Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4580 shares are currently held short.

However Amarin Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Amarin Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Amarin Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Amarin Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Amarin Corporation shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Amarin Corporation 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 Amarin Corporation.

We're not expecting Amarin Corporation to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Amarin Corporation's shares ever split?

Amarin Corporation's shares were split on a 1:10 basis on 17 January 2008. So if you had owned 10 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 Amarin Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Amarin Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Amarin Corporation's share price.

Amarin Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Amarin Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.36 up to $9.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMRN.US volatility(beta: 2.24)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 Amarin Corporation's is 2.2433. This would suggest that Amarin Corporation's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
