Is ZIOPHARM Oncology under- or over-valued?

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

ZIOPHARM Oncology's P/E ratio

ZIOPHARM Oncology'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, ZIOPHARM Oncology 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.

Shorting ZIOPHARM Oncology shares

There are currently 39.4 million ZIOPHARM Oncology shares held short by investors – that's known as ZIOPHARM Oncology's "short interest". This figure is 11.3% up from 35.4 million last month.

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

ZIOPHARM Oncology's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

ZIOPHARM Oncology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of ZIOPHARM Oncology shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of ZIOPHARM Oncology shares traded daily (recently around 2.6 million). ZIOPHARM Oncology's SIR currently stands at 15.07. In other words for every 100,000 ZIOPHARM Oncology shares traded daily on the market, roughly 15070 shares are currently held short.

However ZIOPHARM Oncology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of ZIOPHARM Oncology shares, or, against the total number of tradable ZIOPHARM Oncology shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case ZIOPHARM Oncology's short interest could be expressed as 0.18% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ZIOPHARM Oncology shares in existence, roughly 180 shares are currently held short) or 0.1933% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ZIOPHARM Oncology 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 ZIOPHARM Oncology.

ZIOPHARM Oncology share dividends

We're not expecting ZIOPHARM Oncology to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have ZIOPHARM Oncology's shares ever split?

ZIOPHARM Oncology's shares were split on a 1:40 basis on 23 August 2005. So if you had owned 40 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 ZIOPHARM Oncology shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 3900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for ZIOPHARM Oncology shares which in turn could have impacted ZIOPHARM Oncology's share price.

ZIOPHARM Oncology share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ZIOPHARM Oncology's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.06 up to $5.95. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

ZIOP.US volatility(beta: 2.09)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 ZIOPHARM Oncology's is 2.0871. This would suggest that ZIOPHARM Oncology's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
