Is Bitauto under- or over-valued?

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

Bitauto's PEG ratio

Bitauto's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 63.38. 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 Bitauto'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 Bitauto shares

There are currently 3.3 million Bitauto shares held short by investors – that's known as Bitauto's "short interest". This figure is 7.6% up from 3.1 million last month.

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

Bitauto's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Bitauto's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Bitauto shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Bitauto shares traded daily (recently around 792738.47980998). Bitauto's SIR currently stands at 4.21. In other words for every 100,000 Bitauto shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4210 shares are currently held short.

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

Bitauto share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Bitauto's shares have ranged in value from as little as $9.6 up to $16. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BITA.US volatility(beta: 0.68)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 Bitauto's is 0.6821. This would suggest that Bitauto's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
