Short Ratio – The short ratio is a measure of short interest. As the short ratio goes higher, it means that more investors have a belief that the value of the stock is headed for declines. In general, biotechnology stocks can have a higher short ratio. However, we also see a lot of short squeezes in the space. Nonetheless, when it comes to Immunic, Inc., it’s short ratio amounts to 0.75.

Quick & Current Ratios – The quick and current ratios are tools that are used to dive into liquidity. Basically, they measure whether or not a company can cover its debts as they mature based on current assets or quick assets. Because many biotech companies rely on the continuation of investor support, the current and quick ratios can be damning. Nonetheless, some gems in the biotechnology industry do have positive quick and current ratios. In terms of IMUX, the quick and current ratios come to 7.00 and 7.00 respectively.  

Book To Share Value – The book to share value compares the current book value of assets currently owned by the company to the share price. when it comes to Immunic, Inc., that ratio equates to 8.28.

Cash To Share Value – Finally, the cash to share value comparison compares the total cash on hand to the price of the company’s stock. Many early stage biotech companies struggle to keep cash on hand. So, if you’re considering an investment in a biotechnology stock, this is an important ratio to consider. In this case, the cash to share value comes to 0.94.

Show Me The Big Money

One thing that I’ve come to understand so far in my short time on Earth is that smart investors tend to follow big money players. That is to say, investors that want to keep their investments relatively safe will watch trades made by institutional investors and those on the inside. With that said, is big money flowing in regard to IMUX? Here’s what’s happening:

Institutions own 1.80% of the company. Institutional interest has moved by 5.18% over the past three months. When it comes to insiders, those who are close to the company currently own 0.30% percent of IMUX shares. Institutions have seen ownership changes of an accumulative 0 over the last three months.

What’s The Float Looking Like?

Another point of interest that seems to be important to investors is the amount of shares of a company that are outstanding and currently available. At the moment, there are 10.16M shares of Immunic, Inc. outstanding. Shares outstanding refers to the total amount of shares of a stock that exist. As far as the float goes, or the amount of shares that are actually available on the retail market, IMUX has a float of 9.82M.

I also find it important to take a look at the short percent. Think about it, if a high percentage of the float available for trading is shorted, the overall feeling in the market is that the stock is going to lose value. In regard to IMUX, the percentage of the float that is sold short is 1.33%. Most investors would say that a high short percent of the float would be considered to be anything over 40%. In my research, I’ve calculated that a short ratio over 26% is generally a a play that could prove to be very risky.

What We’ve Seen In earnings results

At the moment, analysts are expecting that throughout the full year, earnings per diluted share will come in at $-2.90. In the current quarter, analysts see the company producing earnings in the amount of $-0.62. Over the last 5 years, IMUX has generated revenue in the amount of $0 with earnings coming in at 12.00%. On a quarter over quarter basis, earnings have seen movement of 36.10% and revenue has seen movement of 0.
