Is XORTX Therapeutics stock undervalued or overvalued?

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

XORTX Therapeutics's P/E ratio

XORTX 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 2x. In other words, XORTX Therapeutics shares trade at around 2x 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.

However, XORTX Therapeutics's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the biotechnology industry or those of similar companies.

Have XORTX Therapeutics's shares ever split?

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your XORTX Therapeutics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 1074% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for XORTX Therapeutics shares which in turn could have impacted XORTX Therapeutics's share price.

XORTX Therapeutics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, XORTX Therapeutics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $0.571 up to $2.48. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while XORTX Therapeutics's is 0.3168. This would suggest that XORTX Therapeutics's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
