Is Neurocrine Biosciences under- or over-valued?

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

Neurocrine Biosciences's P/E ratio

Neurocrine Biosciences's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 24x. In other words, Neurocrine Biosciences shares trade at around 24x 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.

Neurocrine Biosciences's PEG ratio

Neurocrine Biosciences's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.87. 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 Neurocrine 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.

Neurocrine Biosciences's EBITDA

Neurocrine Biosciences's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $309.1 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Neurocrine Biosciences's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Neurocrine Biosciences shares

There are currently 4.4 million Neurocrine Biosciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Neurocrine Biosciences's "short interest". This figure is 1.2% down from 4.4 million last month.

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

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

Neurocrine Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Neurocrine Biosciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Neurocrine Biosciences shares traded daily (recently around 777887.74422735). Neurocrine Biosciences's SIR currently stands at 5.63. In other words for every 100,000 Neurocrine Biosciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5630 shares are currently held short.

However Neurocrine Biosciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Neurocrine Biosciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Neurocrine Biosciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Neurocrine Biosciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Neurocrine Biosciences shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0.047% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Neurocrine Biosciences shares, roughly 47 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 Neurocrine Biosciences.
