Is Seattle Genetics under- or over-valued?

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

PEG ratio

Seattle Genetics's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 18.5286. Higher PEG ratios such as this can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value given the current rate of growth.
