Is Incyte Corporation under- or over-valued?
Valuing Incyte Corporation stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Incyte Corporation's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Incyte Corporation's P/E ratio
Incyte Corporation's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 35x. In other words, Incyte Corporation shares trade at around 35x 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.
Incyte Corporation's PEG ratio
Incyte Corporation's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9078. 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 Incyte Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Incyte Corporation's EBITDA

Shorting Incyte Corporation shares
There are currently 5.9 million Incyte Corporation shares held short by investors – that's known as Incyte Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 5.5% up from 5.6 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Incyte Corporation shares can be evaluated.
Incyte Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Incyte Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Incyte Corporation shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Incyte Corporation shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). Incyte Corporation's SIR currently stands at 4.63. In other words for every 100,000 Incyte Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4630 shares are currently held short.
However Incyte Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Incyte Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Incyte Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Incyte Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Incyte Corporation shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0315% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Incyte Corporation shares, roughly 32 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 Incyte Corporation.
