Is Cheetah Mobile under- or over-valued?

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 P/E ratio

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 4x. In other words, Cheetah Mobile shares trade at around 4x 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 PEG ratio

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.

Shorting Cheetah Mobile shares

There are currently 729,728 Cheetah Mobile shares held short by investors – that's known as Cheetah Mobile's "short interest". This figure is 34.8% down from 1.1 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)

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 221801.82370821). Cheetah Mobile's SIR currently stands at 3.29. In other words for every 100,000 Cheetah Mobile shares traded daily on the market, roughly 3290 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 0.0182% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cheetah Mobile shares, roughly 18 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 Cheetah Mobile.

Cheetah Mobile share price volatility

CMCM.US volatility(beta: 1.31)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 Cheetah Mobile's is 1.3063. 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).
