How has coronavirus impacted BioNTech's share price?

Since the stock market crash in March caused by coronavirus, BioNTech's share price has had significant positive movement.

Its last close price was $156.53, which is 79.33% up on its pre-crash value of $32.35 and 459.04% up on the lowest point reached during the March crash when the shares fell as low as $28.00.

If you had bought $1,000 worth of BioNTech shares at the start of February 2020, those shares would have been worth $1.00 at the bottom of the March crash, and if you held on to them, then as of the last market close they'd be worth $5.00.

Is BioNTech stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

BioNTech's P/E ratio

BioNTech's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, BioNTech shares trade at around 6x 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.

BioNTech's PEG ratio

BioNTech's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.0648. 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 BioNTech's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.


BioNTech's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $10.3 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a BioNTech's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

BioNTech share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, BioNTech's shares have ranged in value from as little as $90.29 up to $464. 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 BioNTech's is -1.3818. This would suggest that BioNTech's shares have been inversely-correlated to the average (for this exchange) – so when the broader market trended up or down, BioNTech has bucked the trend.
