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

Clovis Oncology's PEG ratio

Clovis Oncology's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.13. 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.

Shorting Clovis Oncology shares

There are currently 39.2 million Clovis Oncology shares held short by investors – that's known as Clovis Oncology's "short interest". This figure is 3.3% up from 37.9 million last month.

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

Clovis Oncology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Clovis Oncology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Clovis Oncology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Clovis Oncology shares traded daily (recently around 5.3 million). Clovis Oncology's SIR currently stands at 7.35. In other words for every 100,000 Clovis Oncology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7350 shares are currently held short.

However Clovis Oncology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Clovis Oncology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Clovis Oncology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Clovis Oncology's short interest could be expressed as 0.44% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Clovis Oncology shares in existence, roughly 440 shares are currently held short) or 0.4571% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Clovis Oncology shares, roughly 457 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 Clovis Oncology.
