Is 21Vianet Group under- or over-valued?

Valuing 21Vianet Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of 21Vianet Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

21Vianet Group's P/E ratio

21Vianet Group's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 45x. In other words, 21Vianet Group shares trade at around 45x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Shorting 21Vianet Group shares

There are currently 6.8 million 21Vianet Group shares held short by investors – that's known as 21Vianet Group's "short interest". This figure is 20% up from 5.7 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting 21Vianet Group shares can be evaluated.

21Vianet Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

21Vianet Group's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of 21Vianet Group shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of 21Vianet Group shares traded daily (recently around 2.5 million). 21Vianet Group's SIR currently stands at 2.73. In other words for every 100,000 21Vianet Group shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2730 shares are currently held short.

However 21Vianet Group's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of 21Vianet Group shares, or, against the total number of tradable 21Vianet Group shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case 21Vianet Group's short interest could be expressed as 0.05% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 21Vianet Group shares in existence, roughly 50 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable 21Vianet Group shares, roughly 0 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 21Vianet Group.
