Is Catalyst Biosciences under- or over-valued?

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

Catalyst Biosciences's PEG ratio

Catalyst Biosciences's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.02. 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 Catalyst Biosciences's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Catalyst Biosciences shares

There are currently 912,042 Catalyst Biosciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Catalyst Biosciences's "short interest". This figure is 6.6% down from 976,001 last month.

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

Catalyst Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Catalyst Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Catalyst Biosciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Catalyst Biosciences shares traded daily (recently around 323419.14893617). Catalyst Biosciences's SIR currently stands at 2.82. In other words for every 100,000 Catalyst Biosciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2820 shares are currently held short.

However Catalyst Biosciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Catalyst Biosciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Catalyst Biosciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Catalyst Biosciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Catalyst Biosciences shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0327% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Catalyst Biosciences shares, roughly 33 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 Catalyst Biosciences.

Have Catalyst Biosciences's shares ever split?

Catalyst Biosciences's shares were split on a 1:15 basis on 13 February 2017. 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 Catalyst Biosciences shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1400% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Catalyst Biosciences shares which in turn could have impacted Catalyst Biosciences's share price.

Catalyst Biosciences share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Catalyst Biosciences's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.43 up to $8.66. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CBIO.US volatility(beta: 2.06)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Catalyst Biosciences's is 2.0577. This would suggest that Catalyst Biosciences's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
