Valuing Autohome stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Autohome's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Autohome's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, Autohome shares trade at around 26x 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.
Autohome's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 43.93. 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 Autohome's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 4.1 million Autohome shares held short by investors – that's known as Autohome's "short interest". This figure is 5% down from 4.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Autohome shares can be evaluated.
Autohome's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Autohome shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Autohome shares traded daily (recently around 430780.16967126). Autohome's SIR currently stands at 9.43. In other words for every 100,000 Autohome shares traded daily on the market, roughly 9430 shares are currently held short.
However Autohome's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Autohome shares, or, against the total number of tradable Autohome shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Autohome's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Autohome shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Autohome shares, roughly 0 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Autohome.

Dividend payout ratio: 2.72% of net profits
Recently Autohome has paid out, on average, around 2.72% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.79% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Autohome shareholders could enjoy a 0.79% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Autohome's case, that would currently equate to about $0.77 per share.
While Autohome's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Autohome is investing more in its future growth.
Autohome's most recent dividend payout was on 22 April 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 April 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Autohome's shares have ranged in value from as little as $59.54 up to $102.2. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Autohome's is 0.904. This would suggest that Autohome's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
