Is Enzo Biochem under- or over-valued?

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

Enzo Biochem's P/E ratio

Enzo Biochem's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 101x. In other words, Enzo Biochem shares trade at around 101x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Shorting Enzo Biochem shares

There are currently 2.0 million Enzo Biochem shares held short by investors – that's known as Enzo Biochem's "short interest". This figure is 2% up from 1.9 million last month.

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

Enzo Biochem's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Enzo Biochem's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Enzo Biochem shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Enzo Biochem shares traded daily (recently around 333115.5143339). Enzo Biochem's SIR currently stands at 5.93. In other words for every 100,000 Enzo Biochem shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5930 shares are currently held short.

However Enzo Biochem's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Enzo Biochem shares, or, against the total number of tradable Enzo Biochem shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Enzo Biochem's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Enzo Biochem shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0509% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Enzo Biochem shares, roughly 51 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 Enzo Biochem.

Have Enzo Biochem's shares ever split?

Enzo Biochem's shares were split on a 105:100 basis on 21 October 2004. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 105 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Enzo Biochem shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Enzo Biochem shares which in turn could have impacted Enzo Biochem's share price.

Enzo Biochem share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Enzo Biochem's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.56 up to $3.68. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ENZ.US volatility(beta: 0.86)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Enzo Biochem's is 0.8604. This would suggest that Enzo Biochem's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
