Is BioMarin Pharmaceutical under- or over-valued?
Valuing BioMarin Pharmaceutical stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of BioMarin Pharmaceutical's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
BioMarin Pharmaceutical's P/E ratio
BioMarin Pharmaceutical's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 18x. In other words, BioMarin Pharmaceutical shares trade at around 18x 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.
BioMarin Pharmaceutical's PEG ratio
BioMarin Pharmaceutical's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7891. 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 BioMarin Pharmaceutical's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
BioMarin Pharmaceutical's EBITDA
BioMarin Pharmaceutical's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $13.4 million.

Shorting BioMarin Pharmaceutical shares
There are currently 10.6 million BioMarin Pharmaceutical shares held short by investors – that's known as BioMarin Pharmaceutical's "short interest". This figure is 10.4% down from 11.8 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting BioMarin Pharmaceutical shares can be evaluated.
BioMarin Pharmaceutical's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
BioMarin Pharmaceutical's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of BioMarin Pharmaceutical shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of BioMarin Pharmaceutical shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). BioMarin Pharmaceutical's SIR currently stands at 9.95. In other words for every 100,000 BioMarin Pharmaceutical shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9950 shares are currently held short.
However BioMarin Pharmaceutical's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of BioMarin Pharmaceutical shares, or, against the total number of tradable BioMarin Pharmaceutical shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case BioMarin Pharmaceutical's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 BioMarin Pharmaceutical shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0584% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable BioMarin Pharmaceutical shares, roughly 58 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against BioMarin Pharmaceutical.
