Is Ocugen under- or over-valued?

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

Ocugen's P/E ratio

Ocugen's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 0x. In other words, Ocugen shares trade at around 0x recent earnings.

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 shares or simply that they're under-valued.

Shorting Ocugen shares

There are currently 5.5 million Ocugen shares held short by investors – that's known as Ocugen's "short interest". This figure is 11.5% down from 6.2 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Ocugen shares can be evaluated.

Ocugen's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Ocugen's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Ocugen shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Ocugen shares traded daily (recently around 5.0 million). Ocugen's SIR currently stands at 1.09. In other words for every 100,000 Ocugen shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1090 shares are currently held short.

However Ocugen's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Ocugen shares, or, against the total number of tradable Ocugen shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Ocugen's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Ocugen shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0348% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Ocugen shares, roughly 35 shares are currently held short).

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