Is Seagen under- or over-valued?
Valuing Seagen stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Seagen's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Seagen's P/E ratio
Seagen's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 40x. In other words, Seagen shares trade at around 40x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Seagen's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $648.5 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Seagen's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Seagen shares
There are currently 3.0 million Seagen shares held short by investors – that's known as Seagen's "short interest". This figure is 6.2% down from 3.2 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Seagen shares can be evaluated.
Seagen's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Seagen's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Seagen shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Seagen shares traded daily (recently around 704007.3286052). Seagen's SIR currently stands at 4.23. In other words for every 100,000 Seagen shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4230 shares are currently held short.
However Seagen's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Seagen shares, or, against the total number of tradable Seagen shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Seagen's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Seagen shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0225% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Seagen shares, roughly 23 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 Seagen.
