Is PTC Therapeutics under- or over-valued?

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

PTC Therapeutics's PEG ratio

PTC Therapeutics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.81. 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 PTC Therapeutics's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting PTC Therapeutics shares

There are currently 5.2 million PTC Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as PTC Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 2.1% up from 5.1 million last month.

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

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

PTC Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of PTC Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of PTC Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 608783.89731622). PTC Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 8.57. In other words for every 100,000 PTC Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 8570 shares are currently held short.

However PTC Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of PTC Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable PTC Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case PTC Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.07% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 PTC Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 70 shares are currently held short) or 0.076% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable PTC Therapeutics shares, roughly 76 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 PTC Therapeutics.
