Is Amarin Corporation under- or over-valued?

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

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 stocks or simply that they're over-valued.

There are currently 23.5 million Amarin Corporation stocks held short by investors – that's known as Amarin Corporation's "short interest". This figure is 6.1% down from 25.1 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Amarin Corporation stocks can be evaluated.

Amarin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Amarin Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Amarin Corporation stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Amarin Corporation stocks traded daily (recently around 3.4 million). Amarin Corporation's SIR currently stands at 6.83. In other words for every 100,000 Amarin Corporation stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 6830 stocks are currently held short.

However Amarin Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Amarin Corporation stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Amarin Corporation stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Amarin Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Amarin Corporation stocks in existence, roughly 60 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0655% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Amarin Corporation stocks, roughly 66 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Amarin Corporation.

This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Amarin Corporation stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 900% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Amarin Corporation stocks which in turn could have impacted Amarin Corporation's stock price.

Amarin Corporation stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Amarin Corporation's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $3.36 up to $9.25. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMRN.US volatility(beta: 2.24)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Amarin Corporation's is 2.2421. This would suggest that Amarin Corporation's stocks are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
