Is Sage Therapeutics under- or over-valued?

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

Sage Therapeutics's P/E ratio

Sage 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 4x. In other words, Sage Therapeutics shares trade at around 4x 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.

Sage Therapeutics's PEG ratio

Sage Therapeutics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.74. 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 Sage 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.

Sage Therapeutics's EBITDA

Sage Therapeutics's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $663.6 million.

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

Shorting Sage Therapeutics shares

There are currently 3.7 million Sage Therapeutics shares held short by investors – that's known as Sage Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 3.1% down from 3.9 million last month.

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

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

Sage Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sage Therapeutics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sage Therapeutics shares traded daily (recently around 1.4 million). Sage Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 2.63. In other words for every 100,000 Sage Therapeutics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2630 shares are currently held short.

However Sage Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sage Therapeutics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Sage Therapeutics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sage Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Sage Therapeutics shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0729% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Sage Therapeutics shares, roughly 73 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 Sage Therapeutics.

SAGE.US volatility(beta: 1.99)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 Sage Therapeutics's is 1.9869. This would suggest that Sage Therapeutics's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
