Is Aridis Pharmaceuticals under- or over-valued?

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

Aridis Pharmaceuticals's P/E ratio

Aridis 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 3x. In other words, Aridis Pharmaceuticals shares trade at around 3x 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 Aridis Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 8,248 Aridis Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Aridis Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 28.4% down from 11,526 last month.

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

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

Aridis Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Aridis Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Aridis Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 19181.395348837). Aridis Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 0.43. In other words for every 100,000 Aridis Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 430 shares are currently held short.

However Aridis Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Aridis Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Aridis Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Aridis Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Aridis Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0007% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Aridis Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 1 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 Aridis Pharmaceuticals.
