Is Puma Biotechnology under- or over-valued?

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

Puma Biotechnology's PEG ratio

Puma Biotechnology's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.03. 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 Puma Biotechnology'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 Puma Biotechnology shares

There are currently 8.1 million Puma Biotechnology shares held short by investors – that's known as Puma Biotechnology's "short interest". This figure is 1% up from 8.0 million last month.

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

Puma Biotechnology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Puma Biotechnology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Puma Biotechnology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Puma Biotechnology shares traded daily (recently around 550681.39059305). Puma Biotechnology's SIR currently stands at 14.67. In other words for every 100,000 Puma Biotechnology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 14670 shares are currently held short.

However Puma Biotechnology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Puma Biotechnology shares, or, against the total number of tradable Puma Biotechnology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Puma Biotechnology's short interest could be expressed as 0.2% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Puma Biotechnology shares in existence, roughly 200 shares are currently held short) or 0.2644% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Puma Biotechnology shares, roughly 264 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 Puma Biotechnology.

Puma Biotechnology share price volatility

PBYI.US volatility(beta: 1.19)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Puma Biotechnology's is 1.1917. This would suggest that Puma Biotechnology's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
