Is Cango under- or over-valued?

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

Cango's P/E ratio

Cango's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 1x. In other words, Cango shares trade at around 1x 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.

Cango's EBITDA

Cango's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $540.4 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Cango's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Shorting Cango shares

There are currently 776,217 Cango shares held short by investors – that's known as Cango's "short interest". This figure is 21.5% down from 989,218 last month.

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

Cango's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cango's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cango shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cango shares traded daily (recently around 320750.82644628). Cango's SIR currently stands at 2.42. In other words for every 100,000 Cango shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2420 shares are currently held short.

However Cango's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cango shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cango shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cango's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cango shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0355% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cango shares, roughly 36 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 Cango.

Cango share dividends

27%

Dividend payout ratio: 26.77% of net profits

Recently Cango has paid out, on average, around 26.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.52% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cango shareholders could enjoy a 4.52% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cango's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.

While Cango's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Cango may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Cango's most recent dividend payout was on 7 April 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 18 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Cango share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cango's shares have ranged in value from as little as $3.33 up to $16.6593. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CANG.US volatility(beta: 1.14)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 Cango's is 1.1402. This would suggest that Cango'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).
