Is Surface Oncology under- or over-valued?

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

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 stocks or simply that they're under-valued.

There are currently 4.8 million Surface Oncology stocks held short by investors – that's known as Surface Oncology's "short interest". This figure is 12.6% up from 4.3 million last month.

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

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

Surface Oncology's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Surface Oncology stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Surface Oncology stocks traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Surface Oncology's SIR currently stands at 4.54. In other words for every 100,000 Surface Oncology stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 4540 stocks are currently held short.

However Surface Oncology's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Surface Oncology stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Surface Oncology stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Surface Oncology's short interest could be expressed as 0.11% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Surface Oncology stocks in existence, roughly 110 stocks are currently held short) or 0.1469% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Surface Oncology stocks, roughly 147 stocks are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the stock price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Surface Oncology.

Beta is a measure of a stocks volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Surface Oncology's is 1.8426. This would suggest that Surface Oncology's stocks are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
