Is OPKO Health under- or over-valued?

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

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.

Shorting OPKO Health shares

There are currently 53.8 million OPKO Health shares held short by investors – that's known as OPKO Health's "short interest". This figure is 0.6% down from 54.1 million last month.

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

OPKO Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

OPKO Health's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of OPKO Health shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of OPKO Health shares traded daily (recently around 5.0 million). OPKO Health's SIR currently stands at 10.78. In other words for every 100,000 OPKO Health shares traded daily on the market, roughly 10780 shares are currently held short.

However OPKO Health's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of OPKO Health shares, or, against the total number of tradable OPKO Health shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case OPKO Health's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 OPKO Health shares in existence, roughly 80 shares are currently held short) or 0.1388% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable OPKO Health shares, roughly 139 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against OPKO Health.
