Valuing bluebird bio stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of bluebird bio's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
bluebird bio's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.32. 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 bluebird bio's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 6.1 million bluebird bio shares held short by investors – that's known as bluebird bio's "short interest". This figure is 0.7% down from 6.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting bluebird bio shares can be evaluated.
bluebird bio's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of bluebird bio shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of bluebird bio shares traded daily (recently around 699204). bluebird bio's SIR currently stands at 8.75. In other words for every 100,000 bluebird bio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8750 shares are currently held short.
However bluebird bio's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of bluebird bio shares, or, against the total number of tradable bluebird bio shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case bluebird bio's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 bluebird bio shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1345% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable bluebird bio shares, roughly 135 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 bluebird bio.
