Is Supernus Pharmaceuticals under- or over-valued?

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

Supernus 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 12x. In other words, Supernus Pharmaceuticals shares trade at around 12x 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.

Supernus Pharmaceuticals's PEG ratio

Supernus Pharmaceuticals's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.47. 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 Supernus 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.

Shorting Supernus Pharmaceuticals shares

There are currently 6.8 million Supernus Pharmaceuticals shares held short by investors – that's known as Supernus Pharmaceuticals's "short interest". This figure is 5.2% up from 6.5 million last month.

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

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

Supernus Pharmaceuticals's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Supernus Pharmaceuticals shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Supernus Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily (recently around 577458.11384877). Supernus Pharmaceuticals's SIR currently stands at 11.77. In other words for every 100,000 Supernus Pharmaceuticals shares traded daily on the market, roughly 11770 shares are currently held short.

However Supernus Pharmaceuticals's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Supernus Pharmaceuticals shares, or, against the total number of tradable Supernus Pharmaceuticals shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Supernus Pharmaceuticals's short interest could be expressed as 0.13% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Supernus Pharmaceuticals shares in existence, roughly 130 shares are currently held short) or 0.1929% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Supernus Pharmaceuticals shares, roughly 193 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 Supernus Pharmaceuticals.
