Is Xenetic Biosciences under- or over-valued?

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

Xenetic Biosciences's P/E ratio

Xenetic Biosciences's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Xenetic Biosciences shares trade at around 1x 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.

Shorting Xenetic Biosciences shares

There are currently 578,104 Xenetic Biosciences shares held short by investors – that's known as Xenetic Biosciences's "short interest". This figure is 1.6% down from 587,535 last month.

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

Xenetic Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Xenetic Biosciences's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Xenetic Biosciences shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Xenetic Biosciences shares traded daily (recently around 275287.61904762). Xenetic Biosciences's SIR currently stands at 2.1. In other words for every 100,000 Xenetic Biosciences shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2100 shares are currently held short.

However Xenetic Biosciences's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Xenetic Biosciences shares, or, against the total number of tradable Xenetic Biosciences shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Xenetic Biosciences's short interest could be expressed as 0.09% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Xenetic Biosciences shares in existence, roughly 90 shares are currently held short) or 0.1038% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Xenetic Biosciences shares, roughly 104 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 Xenetic Biosciences.

We're not expecting Xenetic Biosciences to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Xenetic Biosciences's shares ever split?

Xenetic Biosciences's shares were split on a 1:12 basis on 25 June 2019. So if you had owned 12 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Xenetic Biosciences shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1100% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Xenetic Biosciences shares which in turn could have impacted Xenetic Biosciences's share price.

Xenetic Biosciences share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Xenetic Biosciences's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.44 up to $1.7698. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

XBIO.US volatility(beta: 2.4)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 Xenetic Biosciences's is 2.4025. This would suggest that Xenetic Biosciences's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
