Is bluebird bio under- or over-valued?

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

bluebird bio's PEG ratio

bluebird bio's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.32. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into bluebird bio's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Have bluebird bio's shares ever split?

bluebird bio's shares were split on a 1544:1000 basis on 5 November 2021. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1544 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your bluebird bio shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 35.2% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for bluebird bio shares which in turn could have impacted bluebird bio's share price.

bluebird bio share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, bluebird bio's shares have ranged in value from as little as $8.12 up to $32.5098. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BLUE.US volatility(beta: 1.61)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 bluebird bio's is 1.6102. This would suggest that bluebird bio's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
