Is Bellerophon Therapeutics under- or over-valued?

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

Bellerophon Therapeutics's P/E ratio

Bellerophon Therapeutics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 5x. In other words, Bellerophon Therapeutics shares trade at around 5x 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 Bellerophon Therapeutics shares

There are currently 205,321 Bellerophon Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Bellerophon Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 17% down from 247,368 last month.

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

Bellerophon Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bellerophon Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bellerophon Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bellerophon Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 52781.748071979). Bellerophon Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 3.89. In other words for every 100,000 Bellerophon Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3890 shares are currently held short.

However Bellerophon Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Bellerophon Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Bellerophon Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Bellerophon Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Bellerophon Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0273% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Bellerophon Therapeutics shares, roughly 27 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 Bellerophon Therapeutics.

We're not expecting Bellerophon Therapeutics to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Bellerophon Therapeutics's shares ever split?

Bellerophon Therapeutics's shares were split on a 1:15 basis on 10 February 2020. So if you had owned 15 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 Bellerophon Therapeutics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bellerophon Therapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Bellerophon Therapeutics's share price.

Bellerophon Therapeutics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bellerophon Therapeutics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.27 up to $19.4. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Bellerophon Therapeutics's is -0.4562. This would suggest that Bellerophon Therapeutics's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, Bellerophon Therapeutics has bucked the trend.
