Is 58-com under- or over-valued?

Valuing 58-com stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of 58-com's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

58-com's P/E ratio

58-com's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 6x. In other words, 58-com shares trade at around 6x 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.

58-com's PEG ratio

58-com's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.54. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into 58-com's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting 58-com shares

There are currently 2.2 million 58-com shares held short by investors – that's known as 58-com's "short interest". This figure is 55.6% up from 1.4 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting 58-com shares can be evaluated.

58-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

58-com's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of 58-com shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of 58-com shares traded daily (recently around 1.3 million). 58-com's SIR currently stands at 1.71. In other words for every 100,000 58-com shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1710 shares are currently held short.

However 58-com's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of 58-com shares, or, against the total number of tradable 58-com shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case 58-com's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 58-com shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable 58-com 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 58-com.

58-com share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, 58-com's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.92 up to $56.03. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

WUBA.US volatility(beta: 1.12)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while 58-com's is 1.1182. This would suggest that 58-com's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
