Is Chimerix stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

Chimerix's P/E ratio

Chimerix's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Chimerix shares trade at around 1x 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.

Chimerix share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Chimerix's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.27 up to $6.43. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CMRX.US volatility(beta: 1.18)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 Chimerix's is 1.1821. This would suggest that Chimerix's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
