Is Plus Therapeutics under- or over-valued?

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

Plus Therapeutics's P/E ratio

Plus Therapeutics's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 0x. In other words, Plus Therapeutics shares trade at around 0x 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.

Shorting Plus Therapeutics shares

There are currently 379,588 Plus Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Plus Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 125.2% up from 168,536 last month.

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

Plus Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Plus Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Plus Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Plus Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 998915.78947368). Plus Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 0.38. In other words for every 100,000 Plus Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 380 shares are currently held short.

However Plus Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Plus Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Plus Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Plus Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.04% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Plus Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 40 shares are currently held short) or 0.0414% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Plus Therapeutics shares, roughly 41 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 Plus Therapeutics.

Have Plus Therapeutics's shares ever split?

Plus Therapeutics's shares were split on a 1:50 basis on 5 August 2019. So if you had owned 50 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Plus Therapeutics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 4900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Plus Therapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted Plus Therapeutics's share price.

Plus Therapeutics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Plus Therapeutics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.4 up to $4.1. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
