Valuing Cheetah Mobile stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cheetah Mobile's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cheetah Mobile's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 3x. In other words, Cheetah Mobile shares trade at around 3x 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.
Cheetah Mobile's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 18.25. 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 Cheetah Mobile'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 1.3 million Cheetah Mobile shares held short by investors – that's known as Cheetah Mobile's "short interest". This figure is 0.8% up from 1.3 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cheetah Mobile shares can be evaluated.
Cheetah Mobile's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cheetah Mobile shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cheetah Mobile shares traded daily (recently around 230900.18281536). Cheetah Mobile's SIR currently stands at 5.47. In other words for every 100,000 Cheetah Mobile shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5470 shares are currently held short.
However Cheetah Mobile's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cheetah Mobile shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cheetah Mobile shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cheetah Mobile's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cheetah Mobile shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cheetah Mobile 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 Cheetah Mobile.

Dividend payout ratio: 80.45% of net profits
Recently Cheetah Mobile has paid out, on average, around 80.45% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cheetah Mobile shareholders could enjoy a 25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cheetah Mobile's case, that would currently equate to about $N/A per share.
Cheetah Mobile's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Cheetah Mobile's most recent dividend payout was on 9 July 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 June 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Cheetah Mobile's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.64 up to $4.45. 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 Cheetah Mobile's is 1.5201. This would suggest that Cheetah Mobile's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
