How to buy Regeneron Pharmaceuticals stock | 599.74

Own Regeneron Pharmaceuticals stock in just a few minutes.

Fact checked

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals is a biotech company headquartered in New York. While it works on a number of drugs and diseases, it's most recently been in the news for REGN-COV2 — the experimental antibody cocktail.

The antibody cocktail is being studied as a possible treatment for the novel coronavirus. Most notably, it was reported that President Trump was given REGN-COV2 after his COVID-19 diagnosis. But Trump received the drug under a Compassionate Use request, which means it's not yet FDA cleared and is still highly experimental.

Whether or not this drug proves to be effective in treating the novel coronavirus may have a significant impact on Regeneron's stock prices. With so many companies working on COVID-19 cures, vaccines and prophylactics, it's a race to see which drugs are approved first — and which turn out to be the most successful.

How has COVID-19 affected Regeneron’s stock price?

After news broke that President Trump had been given Regeneron’s experimental COVID-19 treatment, REGN-COV2, the company’s stock rose 7%. This increase brings the stock’s year-to-date gain to more than 60% as of early October.

Excitement over the company’s COVID-19 treatment is buffeting share prices, but REGN-COV2 has not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The treatment was administered to President Trump under a Compassionate Use request.

What’s REGN-COV2?

REGN-COV2 is Regeneron’s experimental COVID-19 treatment. It’s a combination of two antibodies designed to help the immune system recover from illness.

The treatment is still in clinical testing but reported encouraging results from its Phase 1/2/3 study. In this study, 275 trial patients were given REGN-COV2. Administration of the antibody cocktail resulted in a reduction in viral load and time to alleviate symptoms in non-hospitalized patients afflicted with COVID-19.

Side effects were reported in two patients, but those patients were taking placebos, according to Regeneron.

In July 2020, Regeneron signed a supply agreement for REGN-COV2 with the US government worth $450 million as part of the president’s Operation Warp Speed plan to develop COVID-19 treatments and vaccines.

Is Regeneron Pharmaceuticals under- or over-valued?

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

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's P/E ratio

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 21x. In other words, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals shares trade at around 21x 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.

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's PEG ratio

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.0912. 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 Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's EBITDA

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$3.3 billion.

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

Shorting Regeneron Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 2.2 million Regeneron Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 7.1% down from 2.3 million last month.

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

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 862939.0438247). Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 2.51. In other words for every 100,000 Regeneron Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2510 shares are currently held short.

However Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Regeneron Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Regeneron Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Regeneron Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0261% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Regeneron Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 26 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 Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.
