Is 9F under- or over-valued?

Valuing 9F stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of 9F's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

9F's P/E ratio

9F's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 10x. In other words, 9F shares trade at around 10x 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 9F shares

There are currently 76,581 9F shares held short by investors – that's known as 9F's "short interest". This figure is 65.6% down from 222,644 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting 9F shares can be evaluated.

9F's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

9F's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of 9F shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of 9F shares traded daily (recently around 1.9 million). 9F's SIR currently stands at 0.04. In other words for every 100,000 9F shares traded daily on the market, roughly 40 shares are currently held short.

However 9F's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of 9F shares, or, against the total number of tradable 9F shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case 9F's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 9F shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable 9F 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 9F.
