Is Sarepta Therapeutics under- or over-valued?

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

Sarepta Therapeutics's PEG ratio

Sarepta Therapeutics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 159.25. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the stocks offer worse value.

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

How to short and sell Sarepta Therapeutics stocks

  1. Create a CFD or spread betting account.
  2. Search for the stock code. E.g. "SRPT.US"

There are currently 6.5 million Sarepta Therapeutics stocks held short by investors – that's known as Sarepta Therapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 0.9% up from 6.4 million last month.

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

Sarepta Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Sarepta Therapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Sarepta Therapeutics stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Sarepta Therapeutics stocks traded daily (recently around 800737.85450062). Sarepta Therapeutics's SIR currently stands at 8.11. In other words for every 100,000 Sarepta Therapeutics stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 8110 stocks are currently held short.

However Sarepta Therapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Sarepta Therapeutics stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Sarepta Therapeutics stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Sarepta Therapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.08% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Sarepta Therapeutics stocks in existence, roughly 80 stocks are currently held short) or 0.0854% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Sarepta Therapeutics stocks, roughly 85 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 Sarepta Therapeutics.

Have Sarepta Therapeutics stocks ever split?

Sarepta Therapeutics stocks were split on a 1:6 basis on 12 July 2012. 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 Sarepta Therapeutics stocks – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher stock price could have impacted the market appetite for Sarepta Therapeutics stocks which in turn could have impacted Sarepta Therapeutics's stock price.

Sarepta Therapeutics stock price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Sarepta Therapeutics's stocks have ranged in value from as little as $65.3 up to $181.83. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SRPT.US volatility(beta: 1.44)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 Sarepta Therapeutics's is 1.4358. This would suggest that Sarepta Therapeutics's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
