Is Ampio Pharmaceuticals under- or over-valued?

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

Ampio Pharmaceuticals's P/E ratio

Ampio 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 27x. In other words, Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares trade at around 27x recent earnings.

That's comparable to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29).

Shorting Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 17.9 million Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Ampio Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 12.6% up from 15.9 million last month.

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

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

Ampio Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 5.7 million). Ampio Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 3.13. In other words for every 100,000 Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3130 shares are currently held short.

However Ampio Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ampio Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.1% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 100 shares are currently held short) or 0.1027% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 103 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 Ampio Pharmaceuticals.

Have Ampio Pharmaceuticals's shares ever split?

Ampio Pharmaceuticals's shares were split on a 1:3 basis on 1 August 2008. So if you had owned 3 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 Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 200% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Ampio Pharmaceuticals shares which in turn could have impacted Ampio Pharmaceuticals's share price.

Ampio Pharmaceuticals share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Ampio Pharmaceuticals's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.26 up to $1.24. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMPE.US volatility(beta: 1.75)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Ampio Pharmaceuticals's is 1.7534. This would suggest that Ampio Pharmaceuticals's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
