Is Agenus under- or over-valued?
Valuing Agenus stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Agenus's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Agenus's P/E ratio
Agenus's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 149x. In other words, Agenus shares trade at around 149x 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.
Agenus's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $75.1 million.
The EBITDA is a measure of a Agenus's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||$306.7 million|
|Operating margin TTM||22.23%|
|Gross profit TTM||$-56,796,000|

|Return on equity TTM||0%|
|Market capitalisation||$688.3 million|

Agenus share dividends
We're not expecting Agenus to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have Agenus's shares ever split?
Agenus's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 3 October 2011. So if you had owned 6 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 Agenus shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Agenus shares which in turn could have impacted Agenus's share price.
Agenus share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Agenus's shares have ranged in value from as little as $2.44 up to $6.79. 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 Agenus's is 1.1292. This would suggest that Agenus's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
